2 Images of Mary Magdalene







Brother Christ,
We come to you with faces and hearts cast down, or lifted up.
Either way, we need you to strengthen, comfort, and transform us.
Move in and through us, as you have moved through our mothers and grandmothers in faith in all times and places.
Amen.




First painting by Caravaggio. Second painting by Louis Glanzman.

Please remember my partner Ellen, (aka Fellow Traveler, to blog readers)and myself -- this morning she received some very scary medical news that I don't want to go into in great detail here, but she is probably going to have to have surgery ASAP. She has had so many health problems and surgeries over the years, as well as in the past year, and is feeling very afraid and discouraged right now. I am trying not to panic, for her sake, but it's hard.
