Thank you, Jim Scully for taking up the slack and writing the article for issue #123. This comment takes off on the questions you raised in your piece, such as what did Jesus say and what did it mean? He said "I am" and was more explicit about who He really is. What it meant and means is that Mary Magdala saw Him as He really is. In turn, 2000 years later and many thousands of miles from Palestine, Jesus wants me to be the one I really am -- that is the one that God had made and begot me to be, too. This the one that God the Father recognizes and knows should I approach Him in prayer through Jesus and his mother Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit. God bless you all on or connected to the Monastery on The Hill above Waialua and Haleiwa!
