“The Magdalene quality of friendship is the ability to know everything there is to know about a person, to celebrate their fortunes, to weather their straits, to chance their enemies, to accompany them in their pain and to be faithful to the end, whatever its glory, whatever its grief.

The Magdalene quality is intimacy, that unshakeable immersion in the life of the other to the peak of ecstasy, to the depths of hell.

The Magdalene quality of friendship is what distinguishes those who walk with us through the shallows of life from those who take the soundings of our soul and follow us into the depths of them.”

~ Sr. Joan Chittister, OSB, in The Friendship of Women: The Hidden Tradition of the Bible

Mary Magdalene reacquaints us with a deep level of trust and trustworthiness, devotion, Wisdom, the anam cara quality of soul friendship, and so much more.
