In the legends and stories told about Mary Magdalene there can be found some hint of what she may represent to us today; As one who was cleansed from sin; who remains with Christ throughout his death on the cross; and who first witnesses, understands, and believes Christ's resurrection, she represents a human being who is open and available to true "inner knowing" who can "see" in deeper, clearer ways through a unique spiritual connection to both earthly death and the Divine.
