Another Mary

Today was a most unusual start to Advent.  I spent most of the day venerating a 1st class relic of St. Mary Magdalene which was on exposition at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, GA.  This is only the second time the relic has ever left France and its first trip to the United States.  Mary Magdalene, I believe, is an appropriate Saint to begin Advent.  As we look forward to Christ’s second coming, we can look back to the garden of resurrection and recall that Mary Magdalene stayed when others left.  She sought Jesus and was the first to see the risen Savior.  I pray for her intercession that I might know her true devotion to Jesus.
