Soon I am going to be off to Southern France; today I have rummaged in my extensive archive and found a few thoughts regarding Mary Magdalene, which I have written down for you:
In past incarnations I must have been at home in Southern France plenty of times – and above all – must have been very happy. Because every time when I get to Provence or Languedoc, I have the overwhelming feeling of eventually coming home after a long time.
People who are concerned with Mary Magdalene’s history – not with the church traditions but with the spiritual knowledge about her person – know that she not only lived in Southern France but was also worshipped as the disciple and woman by Jesus’ side there for many centuries.
Why is there such a remarkable number of churches that are dedicated to “Our Lady” or Mary, since not Mary but Mary Magdalene lived and worked in this country?
_ Could it be that those places of worship are actually dedicated to Mary Magdalene instead of Mary?
_ Or to her daughter Sarah Tamar?
_ Could it be that the numerous depictions of Mary with child do not show Mary and the baby Jesus but Mary Magdalene and her daughter Sarah Tamar? Or Mary Magdalene with one of her other children?
Could it be that the knowledge about Mary Magdalene’s teachings and her cult were intentionally blotted out during the Middle Ages, because the institutional Church took radical steps against them and also did not shy away from mass murders, as demonstrated by the example of the Cathars?
Feel into yourself! I am convinced that you are going to find an answer inside your heart!
