- Mary, sister of Moses - Exodus 15.20-21
The people had just passed through a great deliverance. The Pharaoh and all his army had been swallowed up in the Red Sea, an image for us of the deliverance of Satan.
For the first time in its history, the people sing. Moses and the sons of Israel extol the Lord, for he has exalted himself, and hath thrown the horse into the sea and the rider, Exodus 15: 1. It is in this context, that intervenes Marie, sister of Aaron and Moses.
What characterizes Mary is deduced from the meaning of her name: Mary (= "exalted, bitter"). There were these two aspects in his personality and this is of course the first that is highlighted in this scene. She is enthusiastic, happy, motivated, this extraordinary deliverance fills her with joy, she exults. So, she goes out with a tambourine and leads all the other women in his wake. On the basis of the same words as those of Moses, Exodus 15: 1, she improvises and emphasizes them with responses and choruses, with women, to the praise of the Lord. The hymn of some is prolonged by that of others in perfect harmony. What show !
The example that Mary, the prophetess, gives us is to stimulate and lead to praise. What a happy influence! May this aspect of the gift of prophet be desired by sisters, filled with joy in the Lord. They may in turn incite and praise those whom they meet in the particular so that, in the assembly, this praise prepared in the hearts, rises spontaneously and fervently, led by the Holy Spirit, for the glory of God's grace.
