Mary Magdalene in South of France Online Pilgrimage
Week 5 of 6 Mary: Strong Woman at the Foot of the Cross
Sat Nov 7, 2020 – 8am – 10am Pacific/11am – 1pm Eastern/4pm-6pm London
Veronique will teach us about:
Mary Magdalene at Calvary
“Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, and Mary of Magdala”. Gospel of John
Mary Magdalene, who had followed Jesus through the streets of Jerusalem, all along his way to the cross, saw him suffer and then die without being able to do anything. Just show her love for him with her presence, until the end.
Mary Magdalene Festivities in July
A few decades ago, I founded with some friends an Association called Santo Madaleno, whose purpose is to uphold the traditions and organize Magdalene’s Festival in July.
I am pleased to share with you some of the highlights of these secular traditions.
Jill will share a brief message from Mary regarding the many layers of emotions that were involved with Jesus’ death and resurrection. Her and Jesus were very human and very multidimensional. She would like to remind us how useful that can be in our own lives, with real life examples and some fun stories about her and Jesus.
Closing: addressing/sharing comments, insights and possible questions from the sacred circle of participants.

Throughout the Gospels, we see Mary Magdalene evolving on her personal path, her becoming towards this initiate, this contemplative of whom the Gospel of Mary speaks. Her route is that of the feminine that we find in each of us, a path to fulfillment.
Her beauty, her seduction, her repentance, her tears on Christ’s feet which she wiped with her long hair, the vase of perfume that she poured out, the forgiveness she obtained from it, her pain near the cross and the tomb, her privileged presence at the resurrection, her arrival in Provence and her contemplative solitude in Sainte-Baume make it the model of absolute love.
Marie Madeleine fascinates: she is an interrogation on love, sin, femininity and the sacred.
Yet she remains deeply enigmatic…
What’s the purpose of this pilgrimage?
We offer you a ray of light in these dark times. Join our Circle of Magdalene’s friends and walk on her footsteps in Provence from your home, as if you were a live participant. Engage fully with the experience, until it possible for you to travel and join us in person.
Take this time out for yourself. Turn off all distractions and give yourself these moments to call your soul you own.
As you can’t come to Mary Magdalene, Mary Magdalene comes to you.
Let her cover you with her coat of compassion and benevolent protection. Let her accompany you on your path, that of love, that of healing, that of consciousness, that of light, the path that leads to your heart…
