Mary Magdalen

Event source: Basic Calendar Events
12:00 AM
For many alternative Christians, Mary Magdalen is understood to be Jesus's bride at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of his children. She is a prophetess and a divine in her own right, and the putative author of one of the so-called Gnostic Gospels.

She is included in this calendar as a formal link between the Christian upbringing of many modern pagans, and their present practices, and as a reminder that all of Christianity can fit inside of a pagan worldview, as Alan Watts pointed out in the 1960s. Ritual on this day can help pagans harmonize the connections between past and present practice, and give them a way to reclaim a part of their spirituality that they may have denied.
