“Hopefully Devoted” is a one-page narrative in the voice of Mary Magdalene. Hailing from the humble fishing town of Magdala, Mary’s childhood was marked by creativity and energy; but as she grew, she was plagued by tormenting thoughts and irrational fears. In the depths of her suffering, she encountered Jesus, who saw past her afflictions and called her by name. Mary’s devotion to Jesus became unwavering, and she used all her resources to support his mission. Through her illness, she found purpose, and her gratitude for her years of darkness remained unshaken. Even at the cross and the tomb, Jesus’s presence and calling gave her solace and unwavering hope. Mary’s story exemplifies the transformative power of faith and devotion.
