A Letter from St. Mary of Magdala
Thank you for celebrating my July 22nd feast day with me and helping
to correct the mistaken notion of my role
as repentant prostitute. Your 10 years of organizing these
celebrations has given me great joy, especially when I see
so many women rising to new forms of leadership in these liturgical celebrations.
I am delighted to share my feast day with the other
misunderstood and forgotten women of the Bible. Thanks
for this important work that is so empowering to so many.
Remember to have faith in our Risen Rabboni who goes before us to next October’s Synod on the Word.
With love and gratitude,
Mary of Magdala!
