St. Mary Magdelene Comments

She is called "the Penitent". St. Mary was given the name 'Magdalen' because, though a Jewish girl, she lived in a Gentile town called Magdale, in northern Galilee, and her culture and manners were those of a Gentile. St. Luke records that she was a notorious sinner, and had seven devils removed from her. She was present at Our Lords' Crucifixion, and with Joanna and Mary, the mother of James and Salome, at Jesus' empty tomb. Fourteen ... Continue Reading

    St. Mary Magdalene was also my Saint of choice for my confirmation. I chose her because of who she was and what she represents. She hears all of our prayers and supports our prayers to our Holy Father. Do not lose faith or hope as these were the very qualities that made her great. Do not despair, she hears you and knows what is in your heart. Peace be with you.

    Don't lose hope in her - she prays for you. Pray you are open to God's will - which is sometimes so difficult to accept. By being here makes me think that you are a person of great faith so please, keep your faith. St. Mary Magdelene is with you. Remember, she has loved much! She loves you! May God bless you richly.

    To K.katlego:
    Do not lose hope. When you trust and believe, when darkness embraces and your faith remains intact; rest assure He will save you and bring you to light. It is, however, on His terms and at His time. Perhaps what you ask for is not in your best interest. Peace.

    Mary is a powerful example for us. However, Nicholas is wrong to say she is the "sole pillar" of Christianity. Christianity is founded by and on GOD. The foundation is the prophets and the apostles (Eph 2:20). To deform Mary into something else is an attack on the basics of the faith, as is done in the Da Vinci Code. Christianity doesn't need Mary; Mary needed Christ - as we all do.
    Pray for us, Mary of Magdala.

    It is interesting what you say about the life of Mary after the death of Jesus and when she died but from which source did you gain this extra information?

    Saint Mary Magdalene, Most Holy Wife of Jesus, Apostle of Truth, Queen of Families and Honor of Hearts. We come to you lovingly aware of the sadness you endured during the crucifixion of our Savior and throughout time on Earth. Oh, holy woman of God help us to understand how your husband, our Savior wanted us to reconcile our Faith during the time we exist on Earth. Help us in our petitions to his most Holy Mother, Mary that she might forgive us our errors and teach us Faithfully, that we might become more worthy of teaching Her Way, as you did. Please help all Christians to look past the limitations of their own perceptions to recognize the infinite Life of Our Holy Savior Jesus. Please help us gain the wisdom needed to understand the Holy Purpose of Your Lives during our time of Earth so that we may adopt your model of Family and Community, Hope and Trust, Duty and Joy. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen

    Mary Magdalene led an interesting life. Some might say her role in Jesus' life, or more precisely, the story of the role she played in Jesus' life, is the sole pillar on which all forms of Christianity precariously sit.
