Just a few questions. Was St. Mary Magdalene the same person as Mary of Bethany Lazarus sister? Also, was she the one who anointed Jesus feet with perfumed oil?
I wonder why I don’t hear more about her in the Catholic world. I mean it seems to me like she should be revered as the second greatest saint. The first of course being Mary Jesus mother. But I mean Mary Magdalene was there the whole way, she loyal to the end. She was with Jesus at the cross. She was at the tomb first and was the first to bring the message to the disciples. Im just wondering why I don’t hear much about this great saint? Seems to me like she would be the second greatest saint there is because of her faithfulness to the end. Maybe Im just not looking in the right places, but I don’t hear much about her.
Also, another question. In the old testament it said that no one can see God and live. Why were people able to see Jesus and live? Just a thought. Thank you!!!
