Conviction, devotion, love, and strength are words that come to mind when thinking of St. Mary Magdalene. Strength is the one word that gives meaning to all the others. To follow Jesus and leave behind her old life was brought about by her conviction that He is the Son of God.

Of course, her love for the Lord was not just a feeling that we are all familiar with because such feelings can be fleeting. It was a love rooted in sacrifice and service.
St. James wrote his exhortation around 60–80 A.D. at about the same time that a Greek philosopher, Epictetus, was quoted as saying: “We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.” It’s safe to say, St. James has the same basic principle in mind. If God formed the body this way, He must be trying to tell us something. Indeed, Jesus said on a number of occasions: “He who has ears to hear, ought to hear.”
