Feast of St. Mary Magdalene – July 22
Mary Magdalene, Mary of Bethany (sister of Martha and Lazarus), and the unnamed penitent woman who anointed Jesus’ feet (see Luke 7:36-48) are sometimes understood to be the same woman. From this, plus the statement in Luke’s Gospel that Jesus had cast seven demons out of Mary Magdalene, has arisen the view that she had been a prostitute. In reality, we know nothing about her sins or weaknesses. They could have been inexplicable physical disease, mental illness, or anything that prevented her from wholeness in mind and body. Mary Magdalene is mentioned in the Gospels

Praise the Lord
