Magdalene’s Feast Day – The Inner Way of Mary Magdalene (redux)

I love this one from Jamie! An excellent exploration of Mary Magdalene and why she matters.

Sophia's Children

July 22 is the historical feast day of St. Mary of Magdala, so it’s very fitting to share this updated post from the early days of Sophia’s Children.

Not that we need confine such celebrations and honorings to one day. After all, Wisdom is timeless, yes?

Who was Mary Magdalene, really?

And why is this question important at all given that we’re talking about a woman who lived 2,000 years ago, and about whom we have only slender references?

For quite a few years now, Mary Magdalene has been re-emerging strongly (along with Lilith and other feisty Divine Feminine exiles), and that’s usually a clue to pay attention to what’s arising since Life restores bits of Wisdom when the timing is vital to Life.

Such questions seem to arise in force when the answer is important to the times, it seems.

    Yes Mary Magdalene was a high priestess. She was following in the Egyptian tradition of her ancestry. High priestesses always anointed the pharaoh or christ. They were also the pharaoh’s wife and usually a sibling. Just like Mary Magdalene was Jesus wife and sister. They were Cleopatra’s great grandkids, Julius Cesar being the great grandfather. The festival began in France which is where she , her daughter and her sister went to immediately after the crucifixion. I believe we had a renaissance era because Mary Magdalene made it to France.

    A little late to the thread… but my first acquaintance to this theme was in Malcolm Godwin’s book “The Holy Grail” in which he theorized that the Magdalene, by whatever name, founded a Church of Love after Christ’s death. Many such churches were founded in the days afterward. This church was, naturally, declared heretical and thus suppressed, as were others. I found this site to say much the same thing: http://www.thesecretmagdalene.com/mariamne.html
