St. Mary Magdalene

Today is the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene, the “apostle to the apostles”. She, from whom seven demons were cast out, was privileged to be the first witness to the greatest event in human history: the Resurrection of Christ. Out of all the men and women ever created, Christ picked her as the one who would proclaim the first Easter tidings to the world. What an honor!
Yet we must also remember that she was faithful to Christ when almost no one else was – she remained at the foot of the Cross when all the apostles save John fled in fear. We hear so many stories of people being healed and delivered from bondage to the devil by Christ in the Gospels, yet Mary is one of the few who respond to that deliverance by following Christ completely in her life. Let us pray that we might be as faithful as Mary and proclaim Christ’s resurrection to the whole world.
St. Mary Magdalene, pray for us!
