Prayer of the Day
Feast of St. Mary MagdaleneJuly 22nd, 2014
This quote from St. Paul’s Epistle unveils for us the true nature of our inheritance. To be baptised and believe in Christ means we shall rise with him to share his glory in eternal life with God. What a blessing, what a gift for us! Let us constantly bless, praise and thank Him for this wonderful gift.
St. Mary Magdalene stood by the Cross of Jesus; with two other women she discovered the empty tomb. She was granted an appearance of the Risen Lord early the same day, from which incident she has been described as ‘the apostle to the apostles.’ The Gospels give no warrant for identifying her with the ‘woman who was a sinner’ who anointed Christ’s feet (Luke 7 :37) or with Mary the sister of Martha who also anointed him. (John 12 : 3)
