Mary Magdalene and the Gardener: Women Leaders in the Church


Brian Lennon SJ

With a Foreword by Ruth Patterson

‘…prolific Jesuit writer Fr Brian Lennon argues that despite being such a recognisable figure in the Gospel story of Jesus, Mary Magdalene is also one of the most misunderstood. Lennon asks what we can learn about the future role of women in the Church.’  Faith Matters, The Irish News

It was Mary Magdalene who brought the dramatic news that changed everything and that would give hope to millions – that Jesus had left the tomb. Why then, since that dramatic revelation, have women not been given equal decision-making weight within our Church? A penetrating analysis by this prolific Jesuit writer.
