Mary of Magdala

John 20:18
Mary of Magdala went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and what he told her.

Isn’t it interesting that Jesus selected a woman to be the first witness to His astounding resurrection…and to be the first person who would announce the most amazing news that had ever or will ever happen? In a world dominated my men, where women were servants and had no rights, it was a woman, Mary of Magdala, who was given the honor to inform the other disciples of the Good News! I wonder how well that went over with the other disciples? In St. Luke’s account, two angels told Mary of Magdala and other women that Jesus had risen. When the women told the apostles, they did not believe them. It may be uncomfortable for each of us at times to announce that we have been touched by the risen Christ. On such occasions…take courage…and think of the example of Mary of Magdala.
