Memorial of St. Mary Magdalene

Alexander Ivanov: The Appearance of Christ to Mary Magdalene

"...There must have emanated from this man, who was the Christ, a light, a power far above nature to free the love of a burning and passionate woman like Mary Magdalene from all obsession, pacify it, order it, and at the same time bring it to full flower."

~from a reflection by Fr. Raymond-Leopold Bruckberger, O.P.

That's what I need, to be freed from obsession, to be pacified and ordered! How I need my sweet Jesus, I can't do it alone! Thanks Karinann for the lovely post-the picture is awesome! Wish I had used it for my post today-it would have been more fitting...oh well!
