The Gospel of Mary inspired the monologue of Mary Magdalene as Jesus’ sister. To me, it became clear that Mary had known the secrets of Jesus and Jesus treated her the best, because they were siblings and best friends, not lovers.

I, again, was too little to go through this devastation of him having cancer and eventually dying, but being a widow and having her husband die when you still have many years to go has major effects on you and your life. One of them can be your relationship with God. This past semester I asked my grandma this question for my religion class and just from this simple conversation I had with her, I learned a lot about her relationship with God and her faithfulness. “Why do you believe in God?” “I believe in God because when I was going through breast cancer and the death of your grandfather and when I felt alone in those times God was always with me.
