    Easter. Many people know of the Biblical narrative in which Jesus first revealed himself as Christ, the Son of God, to the apostles Peter, John, and James. The Franciscan Church of the Transfiguration on Mount Tabor here in Israel commemorates the event. Moving on to Easter, the resurrected Jesus first revealed himself to three women by the empty grave. They included Mary his mother, Mary Magdalene, and Salome. Salome? The mother of Saint James. Just another thought for those who may be on the way or actually in Santiago over Easter.
