I once came across a blog by Thomas Smith, focused on the feast of Mary Magdalene. It reiterates the fact that faith is personal, but not private. Below is an excerpt from the blog. To read the entire post, go to:

Mary Magdalene therefore not only models the courageous and faithful disciple who remained with Jesus through his passion, but she reveals the Church as a missionary Bride to us. Each member of the Body of Christ, must encounter the Lord, as she did.  We must embrace him with love (something we can do every time we receive a sacrament).  But, no faith, no matter how powerful and personal is ever private.  We cannot simply cling to Jesus for ourselves.  He sends us forth, the Good News of our Risen Lord is meant to be shared and lived out by loving others with his tender love.
