there's something about Mary
Hello all, just joined this community upon finding it. My name is Bethany, and I'm an Interfaith Pagan, with an obsession for the Divine Feminine and Mary Magdalene studies. My day-job is as a religious liberty and church-state separation activist. My sacred name, or magickal name, or whatever one might call it, is Aradia, or Aradia B.

I've read a couple of MM-related books and love them. I'm currently trying to finish The Passion of Mary Magdalen by Elizabeth Cunningham, and I've recently ordered "The Beginning" or whatever that title is by the same author. I'm diggin' the fiction part, although that's not usually my first choice of literature types.

One of my favorite titles that I read was Isis, Mary, Sophia.

I currently feel that the more we discuss and expose the truth about Mary Magdalene, the more healing we can bring to the world on various fronts, including women's equality and religious tolerance.

I hope to join in on some great discussions in this community, and hope to learn more from you all.

I was wondering if anyone still had any of the icons mentioned here in this old entry: Mary M icons, especially the one of Mary holding the egg. I LOVED THESE ICONS! The person who posted them has deleted her LJ. If you know her new name, I'll credit her. Thank you so much!

Sts. Maries de la Mer, France
I'm going to France in May and St. Maries de la Mer (www.saintsmaries.com) is one of my planned stops while there.

Have any of you been there? Any tips on things I should see besides the church: things that might not show up in a tourist's guide, recommended hotels or B&Bs in the area (I'll be spending two nights there), recommended places to eat, etc?

I'm doing a bunch of research on my own, but personal recommendations are always the best!

I have a friend that is interested in learning about Mary Magdalene. I've been trying to introduce him to the topic slowly (and in more of a factual sense than a spiritual one). I very recently bought him Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Any suggestions, advice, help or whatever on how to introduce my friend to Magdalene slowly?

I am curious to know if there are other non-Christians here with an attraction to the Magdalene, and if so, whether or not they include her in some respect in their spiritual practice.

If you liked The DaVinci Code, you MUST read The Expected One by Kathleen McGowan. Phenomenal.

The new girl
Hi everybody!

I've recently joined your community and do finally find the time to post a "HI!".
I'm 21 years old and I live in the south of Germany.

I have learned about the true Mary Magdalene when I was reading "The DaVinci" code and her person immediately grabbed my attention. I'm now reading "Holy Blood, Holy Grail", but since this is pretty tough to read, I'm not far yet.

I may say that I left the church about half a year ago and now I am aiming to join a local Wicca coven. That was before I even heard about Dan Brown. However, I realize for myself that somehow, Mary is very much a brigde between Christianity and Paganism. The way she is being worshipped has many pagan influences and I am trying to learn as much about her, her surroundings and time as possible. But I have still a long way to go.

The church as it existed now and today is a very very interesting ... establishment. I love to learn about the history of it from a strictly scientific point of view. I still think that Christianity as it was meant to be when this believe was just born is a great thing. Jesus was a great man. But I cannot see him as the one who is being worshipped by Christians and so I have no reason to follow that believe any longer with my heart.

I don't want to trat on anybody's toes by going too far now, but if you like to discuss, I am always open.

However, I hope that I can be useful for this community and vice versa.

Have a great time! Hope to read you soon!

No posts here since February!

Is anyone going to see The Da Vinci Code movie tonight or this weekend?

Woman With The Wild Thing's Heart: Part 4 of 4
RTE Radio has put the final installment of their four-part series on Mary Magdalene, Woman With The Wild Thing’s Heart, online: “Christianity, Mary Magdalene and the modern”. From the page that comes up, just click on the link to listen to the latest installment of the series, or scroll down and click on the link to listen to the series.

In this episode of this series, we are reminded of Mary Magdalene's role as the primary witness of the resurrection. Experts discuss how that role was diminished, and the effect that would have on all women in Christianity. This is a fascinating discussion, perhaps the best of the four parts of the series. Participants take on issues ranging from The Da Vinci Code to feminism in an attempt to make sense of a subject with such broad scope. The final word in the show comes from Susan Haskins.

Technical note: You need to have Real Player installed in order to listen; you can download it for free from Real’s website (click on the link to “Get RealPlayer - Free”).
