In companionship with Jesus, Mary Magdalene was empowered to find her true self, set free as a messenger of the good news. Her power and confidence for ministry rose from a soul of joyful gratitude to God for her own re-creation in God’s image. She chose the way of vulnerable, self-giving love which Jesus models, reflecting the nature of God.
