And , so I wrote a compilation exactly a year ago, on July 22 2015, in hope for St. Mary Magdalene to take honorable place in the domain of ” organized religion” for the sake of women in it to start paying attention to Her and their own divine nature:
“July 22- the day of feast of Saint Mary Magdalene.
“22072015” July 22, 2015 – the Day of St. Mary Magdalene (The Saint of the slandered)
Except for the mother of Jesus, few women are more honored in the Bible than Mary Magdalene. Yet she could well be the patron of the slandered, since there has been a persistent legend in the Church that she is the unnamed sinful woman who anointed the feet of Jesus in Luke 7:36-50.
Most Scripture scholars today point out that there is no scriptural basis for confusing the two women. Mary Magdalene, that is, “of Magdala,” was the one from whom Christ cast out “seven demons” (Luke 8:2)—an indication, at the worst, of extreme demonic possession or, possibly, severe illness.
Father Wilfrid J. Harrington, O.P., writing in the New Catholic Commentary, says that “seven demons” “does not mean that Mary had lived an immoral life—a conclusion reached only with a mistaken identification with the anonymous woman of Luke 7:36.” Father Edward Mally, S.J., writing in the Jerome Biblical Commentary, agrees that she “is not…the same as the sinner of Luke 7:37, despite the later Western romantic tradition about her.” Would British royalty set the foot in the St. Mary Magdalene church otherwise? Princess Charlotte, daughter of Princess Kate and Prince William, was recently christened in St. Mary Magdalene church.
Mary Magdalene was one of the many women “who were assisting them [Jesus and the Twelve] out of their means.” Meaning – there was a support for ministry of Christ coming from “means” – moneys.
Many Catholic parishes use Magdalene’s feast day to talk about women’s leadership in the church. “We now know that Jesus included women in his closest discipleship, that women such as Mary of Magdala, Susannah and Johanna probably underwrote his Galilean mission, and that women held leadership and ministerial roles in the early church identical to those held by men
She was one of those who stood by the cross of Jesus with his mother. And, of all the “official” witnesses that might have been chosen for the first awareness of the Resurrection, she was the one to whom that privilege was given. She is known as the “Apostle to the Apostles.” She was certainly the most important woman disciple in the movement of Jesus/Yeshua/Yiisos. Many ideas about her persist today, where or not the biblical text and historical resources confirm them. For example, early church Fathers incorrectly identified her with sinful woman who anointed Christ’s feet at the house of Simon the Pharisee. There are few views of her in the story of Jesus and early Christianity.
Who really was MM? Apparently, her status in early Christianity was a high, if not higher, as Peter’s. The Bible gives us clues about her importance. After his resurrection, Jesus first appeared to Mary Magdalene, not Peter, according to the Gospel of John. At first, she did not recognize Him. But when He said her name she knew Him instantly. MM had knelt beside Christ’s cross during those long, fateful hours at Calvary. Although, the ordeal had been ominous and exhausting, she rose early on the first day of the week and went to His tomb while it was still dark. When she discovered that He was not there, she broke down and wept. MM was so desperate to give the tortured body of her beloved a proper burial that she pleaded tearfully with a groundskeeper, even offering him money, to take her to Him.
But the man to whom she spoke wasn’t a groundskeeper. He said only one word “Mary”…And she knew He was Jesus. She responded in turn, “Rabboni” a Hebrew word meaning “teacher” The two shared a sacred moment outside of the tomb when Christ revealed himself to her.
Mary was the first person to see risen Teacher-Avatar- Healer of love… In some scriptures, her name is first on the list of witnesses (Mk. 16:11; Mt. 28:1; Lk.24:10; Jn.20:11; 1 Cor. 15:5-8)
The Gnostic Gospel of Mary adds evidence that Mary was a strong Christian leader. This non-biblical manuscript was discovered in Egypt in the middle of the twentieth century. It suggests that peter was in some instances jealous of Mary. The female disciples of Jesus are treated as active participants in the discourse, in a way that would be unimaginable in later Christianity. Tensions between the men and women disciples are not glossed over. On p. 47, Peter complains that Mary and the other women disciples are monopolizing the discussion with Jesus: “My Lord, we will not endure this woman, for she taketh the opportunity from us and hath let none of us speak, but she discourseth many times.” Later, Mary (p. 135) expresses her misgivings about Peter: “I am afraid of Peter, because he threatened me and hateth our gender.”
Accordingly, she is referred to in early Christian writings as “the apostle to the apostles”
The Gospel of Mary was written when Christianity, still in its nascent stages, was made up of communities widely dispersed around the Eastern Mediterranean, communities which were often relatively isola ted from one other and probably each small enough to meet in someone’s home without attracting too much notice. Although writings appeared early-especially letters addressing the concerns of local churches, collections containing Jesus’ sayings, and narratives interpreting his death and resurrection—oral practices dominated the lives of early Christians. Preaching, teaching, and rituals of table fellowship and baptism were the core of the Christian experience? What written documents they had served at most as supplemental guides to preaching and practice. Nor can we assume that the various churches all possessed the same documents; after all, these are the people who wrote the first Christian literature. Christoph Markschies suggests that we have lost 85% of Christian literature from the first two centuries–and that includes only the literature we know about. Surely there must be even more, for the discovery of texts like the Gospel of Mary came as a complete surprise. We have to be careful that we don’t suppose it is possible to reconstruct of early Christian history and practice out of the few surviving texts that remain. Our picture will always be partial—not only because so much is lost, but because early Christian practices were so little tied to durable writing.
Partly as a consequence of their independent development and differing situations, these churches sometimes diverged widely in their perspectives on essential elements of Christian belief and practice. Such basic issues as the content and meaning of Jesus’ teachings, the nature of salvation, the value of prophetic authority, and the roles of women and slaves came under intense debate. Early Christians proposed and experimented with competing visions of ideal community.
It is important to remember, too, that these first Christians had no New Testament, no Nicene Creed or Apostles Creed, no commonly established church order or chain of authority, no church buildings, and indeed no single understanding of Jesus. All of the elements we might consider to be essential to define Christianity did not yet exist. Far from being starting points, the Nicene creed and the New Testament were the end products of these debates and disputes; they represent the distillation of experience and experimentation—and not a small amount of strife and struggle.
All early Christian literature bears traces of these controversies. The earliest surviving documents of Christianity, the letters of Paul show that considerable difference of opinion existed about such issues as circumcision and the Jewish food laws or the relative value of spiritual gifts. These and other such contentious issues as whether the resurrection was physical or spiritual were stimulating theological conversations and causing rifts within and among Christian groups. By the time of the Gospel of Mary, these discussions were becoming increasingly nuanced and more polarized.
History, as we know, is written by the winners. In the case of early Christianity, this has meant that many voices in these debates were silenced through repression or neglect. The Gospel of Mary, along with other newly discovered works from the earliest Christian period, increases our knowledge of the enormous diversity and dynamic character of the processes by which Christianity was shaped.”–end of quote.
Prayer to Saint Mary Magdalene, the patron of the slandered and grieving ones by E RA SunChild, Bishop of Sacred Gnosis:
“Good Easa/Jesus Christ of Nazarteh, Saint Mary Magdalene, your beloved one and one who received your teaching directly from your heart; she was one of the women who assisted You and the apostles during Your public ministry. She cried with Blessed Mother and Saint John at the foot of Your cross, and she helped to bury Your dead body. For serving You with such devotion and affinity, she chosen to be the first to see You resurrected. I ask Mary Magdalene to pray for myself when I have opportunities to assist others as they approach death or grieve the death of loved ones. Inspire me, O God, in giving them Your comfort and peace, in helping them to accept the dissolution back into the Soul of god Creator, and in guiding survivors to release their loved ones into Your arms.
Saint Mary Magdalene, pray for us, give us wisdom and compassion and guide us on the path of resurrection to a new life with our beloved ones, where it is possible. As you know the deepest love of the Teacher, you know at the same measure the unconditional love and compassion to those who are at the cross-over and those who are in grief. Lead us towards the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Heal our souls. 1080. Amen”
Meditation for the Feast of Holy Mary of Magdala from Ecclesia Gnostica:
“O helper of God and mystic silence before the Aeon, the father of the universe sees thy Angel throughout before his face. We invoke thee, O holy female power, by the angels who rest on the four pillars, whose feet are firmly fixed on the foundations of the divine abyss! We adore thee, great and glorious woman in whose bosom the father of the Aeons was concealed from the beginning! Hail to thee, who art declared in the disk of the night-shining moon; who art present in the abysses of the mighty waters and whose celestial radiance is concealed in the womb of the earth! Despised art thou by the fools of the world, but ever revered by the knowers of the truth! Maiden of the mysteries, consort of the Christos, beloved of the Logos; praise, glory, and reverence shall be thine now and for evermore.
The gospel is taken from the Gospel of St. Luke and the Gospel according to St. Philip:
And behold a woman in the city, which was a harlot, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisees house brought an alabaster box of ointment. And she stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. When the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself: This man if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him; for she is a harlot. And Jesus turned to the woman, and said unto Simon the Pharisee: Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet; but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head. Thou gavest me no kiss; but this woman hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint; but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say unto thee: Her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much.
The Sophia whom they call barren is the mother of the angels. And the consort of Christ is Mary Magdalen. The Lord loved Mary more than all the disciples and kissed her on her mouth often. The others said to him: ‘Why do you love her more than all of us?’ The Saviour answered and said to them: ‘Why do I not love you like her?’ There were three who walked with the Lord at all times, Mary his mother, and her sister and Magdalene, whom they called his consort. For Mary was his sister and his mother and his consort. “
The lesson is taken from the Book of the Perfect Mind:
“I was sent by the Power and came to those who thought of me. I was found by those who sought me. Behold me, ye who thought of me. And ye who wanted to hear me, listen to me. And ye who expected me, accept me. And do not drive me away from before your eyes. And let not your voice or your ear hate me. Do not ignore me anywhere or at any time. Be careful, do not ignore me, for I am the first and the last. I am the honored one and the despised one. I am the harlot and I am the saint. I am the woman and I am the virgin. I am the mother and I am the daughter. I am barren and I have many children. I have many husbands and I am unmarried. I am the physician who heals and I am the one who wounds. I am the bride and I am the bridegroom. I am the mother of my husband and my husband is my father. I am the daughter of my husband, and my husband is my son. I am the sister of my husband and my husband is my brother.”
