Re: Mary Magdalene: Prostitute or Apostle?

negrospiritual, It seems clear to me that Mary Magdalene was a disciple. Not only a disciple, but an important one, not perhaps in a way that the other disciples would understand--there were many things that they did not understand during Jesus' life--but one who stands as an example of what should happen in a life when Christ forgives us. She obviously followed Jesus, and being one of the first at his tomb held Jesus in such respect and love that whatever we feel for him often is weak and...
