This book is especially wonderful for getting to know St. Mary Magdalen. Speyr leads us in a meditation on Magdalen, the one who having been freed of seven evil spirits, giving faithful service to the Lord. The Lord has granted her this faith together with the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit breathed on her as she was delivered from the seven evil spirits. Her devoted faith of discipleship will lead her beneath the Lord's redeeming Cross, to the Tomb, and to the first appearance of the Risen Lord.
Speyr brings out marvelously Magdalen's devoted and faithful love of the Lord that will inspire any Christian to follow the Lord more closely. What she experienced throughout her whole life with the Lord strengthened her to trust and follow him no matter where he went. Even as he was returning to the Father after the resurrection, Magdalen wanted to go with him immediately.
The sections on the woman who was a sinner as hope and Mary of Bethany as love are just as inspiring.
In this very approachable book for all, we come into contact with the vibrant light of Scripture. We learn how to prayerfully encounter the Lord even in the smallest of passages. In the end we are brought by this prayerful reading of Scripture into the circle of the triune life and love.
