Sometimes we just want to go somewhere where everyone knows our name -- where we're accepted for who we are (faults and all.) Church is to be that place -- for even if not everyone knows your name -- God does, and God accepts you just as you are. We might be as fortunate as Mary Magdalene to hear God speak our name -- or we might not. But be assured, God does know you, and loves you. Just as Mary was called to share her Good News with the disciples -- we are called to share God's work in our lives with those we know too.
