Legionaries of Christ
Dear Fr. Juan Maria Solana,
Please discontinue your use of the booklet, Magdala: God Really Loves Women, until such time that you have removed offensive comparisons of Marcial Maciel with Mary of Magdala.
Further, we ask that you reconsider how your represent Mary of Magdala's history in the Church. She was a respected leader, a primary witness to the resurrection and named an "Apostle to the Apostles" by early Church fathers. There is no biblical evidence to support the mistaken notion that she was a prostitute or the anonymous sinful woman named in Luke 7:36-50.
There are many fine scholarly books on the topic. If you want to learn more go to futurechurch.org.
