Sermon on St. John 20:10-21
St. Mary Magdalene

Today we are privileged to celebrate the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene. Some might respond that we do not worship the saints, and that is quite correct. But nobody is worshipping Mary Magdalene here this morning. Rather, the Lutheran Confessions say that we keep the festivals and feast days of the saints (1) to give thanks for their faith, (2) to imitate their faith and life, and (3) to follow their works in our daily callings. Today, then, we follow St. Mary Magdalene to the foot of the cross and rejoice with her in the wake of the resurrection.
