Quotable Quote

"Mary of Magdala experienced grief so profound she didn't realize angels were speaking to her. And yet Jesus said to her, 'Let go.' Could any words have been more disturbing? … 'Let go.' And so must we all -- let go of the Jesus we think we know so well. Let go of the Jesus restricted by our understanding of him. Leave the tomb. He is alive. He is with you. He is unpredictable. Mary of Magdala is the patron saint of those who have to abandon preconceptions."

(Sr. Diana Culbertson, OP at Cleveland FutureChurch St. Mary of Magdala celebration)
