Thursday, Feast of Saint Mary Magdalene
Updated: Jul 22, 2021
Are you willing to share your faith with others, or do you just keep it to yourself? Today Jesus is very clear that if we experienced Him and got to know Him, we can’t just keep Him to ourselves. How many Christians today keep Jesus and their faith to themselves. Some of us want to be just politically correct and not talk about our religion. Some of us are afraid of bringing Jesus to others, and some just don’t think that this is the right thing to do. So, if we only keep Jesus and our faith to ourselves, how will others get to know Him? Today is the feast of St. Mary Magdalene, the lady who was first to be so privileged to meet Jesus after His resurrection, and what does He say to her? He says: “Stop holding on to me but go to others and tell them about me.” This is exactly what Jesus wants from each one of us -- to tell the world about Him and about His resurrection.
