MARY MAGDALENE – Model of Purification and Gratitude

Reflection for Monday of Holy Week

St. Mary Magdalene is identified by name in all Four Gospels, but is also associated with Mary of Bethany, and two anonymous “sinners” to become a unique and dynamically substantial presence in Church tradition, born from her presence in the Holy Scripture.

How does Mary Magdalene reflect a kind of discipleship, and how does she compare with the “other” Mary of the Jesus story?

DID THE BIBLE GET IT WRONG? – “This Generation Shall Not Pass…”

Homily
33rd Sunday of the Year (B)
“This generation shall not pass until all these things have taken place.”

Jesus prophesied that all fulfillment would take place before His present generation. Centuries later, are we still waiting?
