On my bed at night I sought him
whom my heart loves -
I sought him but I did not find him.

I will rise then and go about the city;
in the streets and crossings I will seek
Him whom my heart loves.
I sought him but I did not find him.

The watchmen came upon me
as they made their rounds of the city:
Have you seen him whom my heart loves?

I had hardly left them
when I found him whom my heart loves.
Song of Songs 3:1-4a
Saint Mary Magdalene by Carlo Dolci; 1644-1646; The Hermitage, St. Petersburg

On the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them, "They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they put him."

Mary stayed outside the tomb weeping. And as she wept, she bent over into the tomb and saw two angels in white sitting there, one at the head and one at the feet where the Body of Jesus had been. And they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "They have taken my Lord, and I don’t know where they laid him." When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus there, but did not know it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?" She thought it was the gardener and said to him, "Sir, if you carried him away, tell me where you laid him, and I will take him." Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to him in Hebrew, "Rabbouni," which means Teacher. Jesus said to her, "Stop holding on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am going to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’" Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and then reported what he told her.
John 20:1-2, 11-18
Noli Me Tangere by Correggio; 1525; Museo del Prado, Madrid http://www.wga.hu/index1.html
Mary Magdalene was the second most important woman in the New Testament after Mary, the mother of Jesus.

Once possessed by seven demons, which were removed by Jesus, she experienced a complete and profound conversion of her heart and soul in devotion to the Lord.

She was present at two of the most important moments: the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.

As a result of her devotion, she was the first person to proclaim the Gospel that the Lord had risen to Peter and the other disciples.
