Sts. of Mary Madgalene
Mary of Magdala, the real woman in scripture, personally existing North of Hell, was not only delivered of one, but seven demoniacal spirits. She was completely released, pardoned, and changed forever by the Lord Jesus. We read that she dedicated the rest of her life ministering and serving Jesus and the disciples. She was privileged to have been the first person reported to actually see, hear, and touch the Risen Jesus, Whom she called Rabboni. Mary is awarded the title "Apostle to the Apostles" because of her Resurrection-witness that moves them. She was a ‘great’ sinner in the eyes of the world, but is now truly the greatest woman Saint in the eyes of God, behind the Blessed Mother Mary. If Jesus Himself can mercifully forgive and transform a worldly-woman like the Magdalene from her misspent life, He will not forsake the repentance and faith belief efforts of a ‘modern-day woman’. Our incarcerated Catholic women, and upon being released, as The Sister of St. Mary Magdalene, they strive to give a human face to this genuine, reflective human life in sacred scripture. Like The Magdalene, they see that God exists. God is comprehensible. God’s Word, Jesus, shows how to choose right from wrong, how to choose life from death.\, to be delivered from worldly concerns, deny herself, pick up her Cross, and follow Jesus.
