Let Go

To cling, to grab too tightly, is not love. It is fear. When Mary Magdalene first realizes she is speaking with none other than her risen Lord, Jesus immediately tells her not to hold onto him. Rather, he sends her away, instructing her to go to the twelve and tell them the Good News. Here is the primary act of personal faith that Mary displays. Mary does not cling.
