Mary of Magdala

First encounter :

Jesus with Mary of Magdala according to the Gospel of St-John, chapter 20, verses 11 to 18.

     Mary, go to your brothers and tell them: I am going to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God. Mary of Magdala therefore goes and announces to the disciples that she has seen the Lord and what he told her. Mary, you experienced many kinds of love, you were searching for happiness. The day you met Jesus, image of Mary of Magdala you encountered the love that transformed your life.

     Today, he who was dead is risen. He is always alive. He has manifested himself to you and has sent you as the first missionary to his apostles. You are the first one to give witness of the Risen One. Following your example, may I learn to leave behind my enslavement, my prisons, my false love in order to discover true love in the footsteps of him who is alive, Jesus the Risen One.

     Prayer :  This encounter, Jesus, you are the one who wanted it in your love, you are the one who thought about it, who wished it and who realized it. You could have chosen a different road to reach me and avoided me entirely. You took my road in order to meet me. You wanted to speak to me and help me discover your plan about my life. You wished to invite me into your intimacy. You wanted to touch me, to hold me, to free me. And this is what you did, transforming the encounter into a union of life and permanent love. How can I ever thank you for coming to me and offering me the joy of this encounter which will never end, for ... You are alive.
