"TELL US, MARY, WHAT YOU SAW ON THE WAY (EASTER LITURGY):
Stories of origin & the question before the Church today

After centuries of being depicted as a repentant prostitute, Mary Magdalene is acknowledged today as a leading disciple of Jesus, faithful to the bitter end at the cross, the first person to encounter the risen Christ (John’s gospel), and commissioned by him to preach the good news. This lecture places the recovery of her true gospel story in the wider context of women’s key actions during Jesus’ ministry and the years of the founding of the church. Far from ancient history, these memories offer glimpses of new ways of being church in the 21st century.
