6717The Magdalen--Gold or Black?-Re: Mary M and Anfortas
- Dec 7, 2002Hello Bradford and all,
Thanks, dear Bradford, for every blessed word here.--I'll read and re-
read your post. Also, I will look for the poem I wrote on the
Magdalene soon!--More later in reply to your post and also on a
related theme--Nuestra Senora de Guadelupe (Our Lady of Guadelupe),
whose special day is soon, and that story (of Senora de Guadelupe
and the peasant Juan Diego) relates, it seems to me, to the meeting
of Sentient Soul with Intellectual Soul, and there is the question of
bringing in the Consciousness Soul today.
