Mary (BVM) first to see Christ?


While scripture states that Mary Magdelan saw Christ outside the tomb after Christ rose from the dead, there is something in my mind that tells me Tradition teaches that the Mary the Mother of God was the first?

Could someone help me with where to find writings on this? Early Church Fathers?



Yes, it is just assumed that Christ went to see his Blessed Mother first.

That’s where he must have gone while everyone was looking for him and the tomb was empty, before he appeared to Mary Magdalene.
