From the artist:

Seeing is believing. Believing without seeing is a truly human failing that God asks us to overcome. It is the failing of the followers of Jesus who come to realize that Jesus, whom they betrayed days earlier, is, in fact, who he says he is. He is, in fact, who they have always believed he was.

Why are we so cynical? Is our cynicism an effort to check our sources? None of us want to be taken in by a ruse, so I understand the viewpoint of a doubting Thomas. I understand why the followers disbelieved Mary. I would have wanted proof as well, especially if I was ashamed of my behavior, as they surely were. But why did she believe?

In this image, Mary Magdalene appears surprised. She also seems wiser and more aware in this moment as she looks toward Jesus Christ, the one who was crucified two days prior. How had he rolled away the stone? This was truly a miracle! In this moment, Mary knows. Jesus must have looked like himself. She never wonders if she is dreaming. She never questions whom she saw, though everyone she tells does not believe her.

Perhaps she simply knows deep down what is right. She has nothing to hide, she has confessed her sins. She can see clearly.
