For the longest time, I’ve been fascinated with Mary Magdalene and her relationship with Jesus. Back in my teens, I already had the knowing that they are a couple. Twin flames. Divine mates. Mary Magdalene is the wife of Jesus.
Of the many false teachings about Mary Magdalene that deeply irked me, even as a young child, is her image as a sinful prostitute! Something that has been ingrained deeply in the psyche of every member of the Catholic Church. It simply didn’t feel right. Her being a whore didn’t have the slightest reverberation of the truth to me. I don’t know how I knew that. I had no evidence. I couldn’t prove it. But I simply knew that she isn’t that.
And because I was born and raised Catholic, and I attended an exclusive girls’ school which was run by Catholic nuns, I didn’t have anyone to talk with about what I had felt and known. Not amongst my family or any of my classmates. I didn’t dare.
I’m now a “recovered” Catholic. I no longer have any apprehension or fear of being ostracized as a result of my unconventional belief and controversial stand about Mary Magdalene. I am embracing my being a maverick. An outcast. Excommunicated. It doesn’t matter. I have already excommunicated myself anyway, as I haven’t been attending the services of the Catholic Church for several years now. 😉
I have so much respect and high regard for Mary Magdalene — for what she truly represents, her embodiment of the Sacred Feminine, the sanctity of her relationship with Jesus, her spiritual teachings and her profound wisdom. The woman whom Jesus loved more than his disciples.
Over the years, I devoured whatever books and materials I could feast on about Mary Magdalene and the true nature of her relationship with Jesus. (The works of Margaret Starbird, Elaine Pagels to name a few.) The more controversial, the better! Of course I couldn’t put down the Da Vinci Code, and I watched the movie version on its first day of showing, the very first screening time! 🙂
And I’m excited that there’s a new book, Jesus Mary Joseph: The Secret Legacy of Jesus and Mary Magdalene which talks about “Jesus and Mary’s relationship as Divine Complements.”
Author Ariadne Green shows the reader how “what Jesus accomplished in his long life would not have been possible without the love and constant reflection of his equal and Divine Complement, his beloved Magdalene…that there was a mythological basis to his [Jesus’} life and Mary’s, but one with an altogether different mythological theme than that of a dying God. It is his story and her story woven together that form a new image and more authentic history of Jesus Christ, one that the chapters of this book are meant to illuminate.”
