Mary of Magdala 'Apostle to the Apostles'

Jesus said: 'Do not hold onto me for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and sisters and tell them that I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'.

Mary of Magdala went to the disciples with the news 'I have seen the Lord!' and she told them that He had said these things to her.

(John 20:17-18)

The painting of Mary of Magdala preaching to the disciples & apostles is by the Irish artist Emer O'Boyle.
