Here is an interesting painting: ‘John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene’ by Angelo Puccinelli, bringing these 2 important individualities working with Christ on earth, together. Just as the Baptizer prepared the way for the arrival of the Messiah, Mary Magdalene was chosen to prepare the hearts of the apostles for the visitation of the Resurrected Christ. And in her connection to The Sophia, in our time now, she works to prepare the way for us to receive the Christ in the etheric.
RUDOLF STEINER’S C ALENDAR OF THE SOUL
translated (with added titles) by Roy Sadler
SAINT JOHNSTIDE II
God’s True Word’s Fire
And when I am in senses’ heights
the gods’ true Word from spirit fire-worlds
is flaming in my depths of soul:
Foreseeing, seek your vision, find your star,
divine in spirit ground
the spirit bond with who you are.
A key word here in the German is ahnend, often translated as ‘divining’
or ‘dawning vision’. It’s the only word whose sound I also bring into English.
The ‘ah’ opens our feeling for the future. Last week’s verse asks us to seek
our true self ‘in cosmic warmth and light’ – for our higher self, our star, to shine in us.
Karl König describes the Soul Calendar as having 4 voices.
This is the last verse of the first movement, the voice of the Tenor,
uniting with the spirit through the senses. Next week will be the first
verse of the Baritone, incarnating spirit with imaginative insight.

If we strive to understand the connection of human morality with the crystalline element in the depths of the Earth; and of human virtues living in the shining beauty above in the Sun imbued sky; and if we take these connections into our inner experience, Spiritual Science tells us that the true ‘St. John’s Imagination’ will come to meet us.
In our time together on Sunday we will behold the working together of Spirit-Father, with Earth-Mother, to beget – thru the Holy Spirit – The Son in the Center. This is The Trinity revealed in the St. John’s Imagination available to us now.
