Who did the Risen Christ appear to, first?
Who was the first disciple truly devoted enough and strong enough in faith to accept His full task, even unto death, washing His feet with her hair? And whose name did He promise would always be remembered?
Who was wise enough to sit at His feet and learn the needed things while all the others hustled and bustled and looked after worldly affairs?
Who was the first persecuted person He saved from society's condemnation, challenging each of us to make damn sure we were just as squeaky clean ourselves as we demanded she be, even as we stood there with our righteous and angry fists all full of stones?

Eternal rest grant unto her, oh Lord, and may she rest in peace.  Right there beside Lazarus.
