St. Mary Magdalen
July 22, 2023
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 22 of July, repeating indefinitely
The sinner who St. Luke tells us was delivered from seven devils, Mary Magdalen ever remains for the Church the penitent who was transformed by repentance and love of Christ. She formed part of the group of holy women who followed Jesus until the end of His life and she was the first to whom he showed Himself after His Resurrection. The liturgy identifies Mary Magdalen with Mary, sister of Martha and Lazarus, at whose prayer Jesus raised her brother from the dead, after four days in the tomb.
