Mary Magdalen



“Jesus saith unto her, ‘touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God and your God’. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord and that he had spoken these things unto her” (Jn20:17-18).

Mary Magdalene appears in all of the Gospel accounts of the events surrounding the Ressurection. Because Mary reported the good news of the Ressurection to the disciples.

Mary Magdalen is often represented as a Christian woman , with flowing hair, and holding her ointment-pot.

After the Resurrection, Jesus’ followers, Philip, Lazarus, Mary Magdalen, Joseph of Arimathea were put to sea in a rudderless ship to be left to drown – but the ship came to land at Marseilles Mary Magdalen became a missionary preacher while Joseph sailed further to Britain, Mary is said to have stayed in France.
