You are perhaps the first in more than four centuries to look at me, as I deserve. I am Saint Mary Magdalene, the patron saint of this church, but M. the cure who certainly donated me at the end of the C16th, used an important sculptor of the region or one of his followers. I deserve a moment of your attention. See with what elegance he seated me, probably very close to the tomb where my Lord and Master lay. and clothed in a timeless material that doesn't crumple. I’ve returned to the tomb on this Easter morning to finish embalming Him with this ointment that I’m carrying preciously between my hands… I didn't find Him and in my thoughts I’m both worried and incredulous - an empty tomb. In one instant I am going to meet Him, in the middle of the nearby garden and He will tell me, visible but immaterial, those strange words that wounded and comforted my heart at the same time: «Do not hold on to me…».
