Do you really know why the beginning of Spring is celebrated? I wanted to share this lovely article by Sarah Jane Dennis, who writes regularly for Alchemical Voice. The article gives you a clearer meaning and insight into the Imbolc celebrations - perhaps you will be drawn to creating your own special celebrations!
This blog post is an extract taken from a book called Mary Magdalene's Final Legacy and written by Julie de Vere Hunt. After I read Julie's first two books, 'Apostle to Mary Magdalene' and 'Mary Magdalene's Legacy', I was left with a feeling of deep and gentle love mixed with an element of humbleness. At times, I had goosebumps over my body as the feeling of higher truth resonated through me.
My name will forever be associated with betrayal… I was born in Gaul in 63, shortly after my grandmother Mary Magdalene died. My name was chosen by my mother, Sarah, in memory of the apostle Judas Iscariot, who was wrongly accused of betraying Yeshua.
I was known to my family as Jude.
My mother Sarah, was the daughter of Yeshua and Mary Magdalene, which makes me their first grandson. My older sisters, Mary and Anne, chose not to marry, so it was on my shoulders to carry on the bloodline of Yeshua.
Mary Magdalene founded the Therapeutae community at Lake Mareotis, just outside Alexandria in 33, which was where my mother Sarah was born later that year. When Sarah was nine years old they had to flee to Gaul in a boat, after they had been betrayed to the Roman authorities.
They lived there happily for twenty years until my grandmother’s death in 63. This is where my mother met and married my father, Jean Claude, a native of Gaul.
