Mary Magdalene's feast day today, and many Christians in Israel are in church.
The first Jerusalem church that comes to mind is, of course, the landmark Church of St. Mary Magdalene on the Mount of Olives.
From their website:
"Today, the church is the place of daily worship for the women’s convent of St. Mary Magdalene, under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad. The sisterhood was established in 1936 by Mother Mary (Robinson), an English convert to Orthodoxy. The convent is a thriving community of 30 nuns from all over the world: Russians, Americans, Australians, Arabs, Serbs and Romanians."
I was surprised to encounter native-English-speaking nuns when I browsed their gift shop. For more about that, please see my post from last July.
This is a Catholic friend and neighbor who was ecstatic to receive this 1787 engraving.
The German below it says (if I understand well) that it is after the original artwork by Cavalieri Celesti that was or is in the St. Johann Nepomuk church in München.
But enlarge the photo!
Is it not a highly unusual depiction of the story in Luke 7:36-50?!
