According to a French tradition, St. Mary Magdalene spent the final decades of her life in reclusion and prayer. Alone in a mountain grotto, she pondered on all that had happened since she first met her Beloved. She knew that Jesus called her to the deepest union with his heart, and she poured all her efforts into seeking this union. God created every soul for the very same union, the very same intimacy. In this work the Song of Songs, the life of Mary Magdalene, and the writings of mystics intertwine to show how seeking, finding, and loving the heart of God brings true joy. In its chapters, we are led from the overwhelming awe of God on Mount Sinai to the tender meeting of the Risen Christ and Mary Magdalene in Gethsemane; from the toil of conversion to the rest after the struggle. Let us now join St. Mary Magdalene on her search for the Beloved.

O my dove, in the clefts of ther rock,

in the covert of the cliff,

let me see your face
