St. Mary Magdalene Shows Us the Joy of the Resurrection – Catholic Exchange (4/30/20)
Excerpt: “In her uncontrollable weeping there appears a man that seems to be one of the gardeners. She asks him to tell her where he placed the body so she can go and give Jesus the proper preparations for burial. This is evidence that she has no inkling that Christ was going to be coming back, she is convinced that he is gone forever. In Mary’s mind, all is lost. It is only then that Jesus says to her, “Mary!” (John 20:16). Once a personal connection is made between her and Jesus, once she hears his voice, she knows exactly who it is in front of her. It is not the gardener. This is her teacher, it is the Lord.”
