The Feast of Mary Magdalene

July 22nd is the Feast Day of Mary of Magdala. She carries an archetype of the sacred feminine and feminine Christ.

For centuries, Mary Magdalene was thought of as a sinner and prostitute, but the discovery of the Gospel of Mary and it’s publication in the mid 20th century cast a different light on the only female Apostle.

The Gospel of Mary was “discovered” in 1896 purchased by a German scholar, Carl Reinhardt, but the translation was not able to be published until 1955.

In the Gospel of Mary, which is thought to be written by her, she is referred to by Levi as Jesus’ favorite and Jesus is quoted as saying some revolutionary things, “like there is no sin.”1

What would have happened to Christianity if the gospel of Mary had been included by the council of Nicea in the sanctioned Bible? Would women have had a place in the Church? Been respected for their spirituality? Had secular and religious power?

Lyna Jones of Philofem blog has this to say:

“The restoration of Mary the Magdalene in her true identity is also the rightful place of the Feminine in religion, in the world, in culture, in spirituality, in politics. The dismissal and lies spread about Mary Magdalene did not only damage her reputation and falsified history, it eliminated the role of women in churches, and demonized the Feminine.” 2

In 2016 the Catholic Church established the Feast Day of Mary Magdalene where she is canonized by the Church as “Equal to the Apostles.”

Happy Mary Magdalene Feast Day and the return of the sacred feminine!

  1. Raised in a neighborhood with many Jewish families. My family was Catholic and Lutheran. As a child we attended both churches. Always felt the Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene. Also asked Why couldn’t God be a women. Now in my 70’s, believe that the God?Devine Spirit is both. Have return to my rosary for Mary for me is Mother Earth,

  2. Not only was she Jeshuas favorite she was his betrothed! They had two sons and a daughter together, Sara. There are still festivals in southern France dedicated to her. She was an Essene and her mother Mary of Magdala tought at the Magdala mystery school. Her grandfather was Balthazar the King of Syria and one of the Wisemen. She was also born on the same date as her husband Jeshua. If you want to know the real Holy Grail it was their bodies in close proximaty and their Chakras balanced and unblocked intertwining where they were able to take their spiritual bodies anywhere in the Cosmos they choose to go!
    If that doesn’t throw your hair back nothing will!
