    The Resurrected Christ, in the splendour of His paradisiac appearance, go to His Mother first. It was fair that He should go to Her first instead of Mary Magdalene because, besides being His guardian and comfort, the Mother gave Him life and love.
    Mary, the ever virgin Mother could touch, hug and kiss the Resurrected Jesus because She was the Pure, the Beloved, the Beloved Saint of God.
    And after showing Himself to the Pure Mother,to Whom by right of Holiness and Maternity it was just that the Son-God should go, the Resurrected Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene, the redeemed woman, whom He had come to free her from the sting of lust. The Magdalene deserved this reward of seeing the Resurrected Jesus because of her ability to rise through her own will from the sepulchre of her vices, to strangle Satan who held her, to defy the world out of love for her Saviour and her God. She was able to divest herself of everything that was not love, and she was able to be nothing but love that was consumed for her God.
    But the Resurrected Jesus did not let the Magdalene touch Him because she was not the Pure One, Who could touch, without contaminating Him, the Son Who was going back to the Father. She had still much to purify through penance. But her love for Jesus deserved that reward. Mary Magdalene, the one revived to Grace, had the first vision of Grace Risen.

    I enjoy listening to your talks and I have learn much from them. However, I just have one question to ask. In all your shows, I notice that all the figurines on the table are very still, except for Jesus. His head is always moving. I find rather interesting.\
    Thank you
    God bless

    Wait, you say that the whole church was Mary alone, for the 3 days of the Triduum. What about Mary Magdalene or the Apostle John? John was there for Jesus to say, “son, behold your mother. Mother, behold your son.”

      I think they mean only Our Lady was the only one who still believed that Jesus is indeed the son of God. All of the others still loved Jesus but thought it was over after his death.
