"On the first day of the week, at early dawn, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed..." (John 20.1)
Mary Magdalene is the first adorer of the Heart of Jesus, and she must be the model for our love, a tender and generous love that refuses nothing and is always ready for the complete gift of self.
~ St Madeleine Sophie Barat
As we contemplate Jesus, unlimited Love made flesh, crucified and now risen from the dead, may our love become ever more tender and generous... And may we, like Mary Magdalene, be impelled to be witnesses of the abundant love and life we receive.
