Especially young people but also grown ups do act somehow by playing certain behaviour patterns and by putting on special (protection-) masks because we think only by doing so we will be accepted and loved - even in Church. But we are totally different when being alone...
After the young woman has been using a variety of masks out of her "repertoire" on different occasions, suddenly Jesus knocks on her door...but He is not interested in her masks.
He reveals to her how she really is - wonderfully and beautifully made, unique, individual and therefore so precious.
Jesus loves us unconditionally. He knows us already through and through. With Him we can be who we are.
We don't need to be afraid of other people or must impress them.
