St. MARY MAGDALENE

Christian Saint

Patron Saint of Penitents, Converts, Repenters and Ex-prostitutes

The sinner who washed Christ’s feet with her tears. Not to be confused with the virgin St. Mary

Reputed to have been a prostitute, this was probably fabricated to add a little spice to the tale. She is the epitome of the fallen woman redeemed.

Was she the sister of St. Martha and Lazarus? Did she really mistake Jesus for the gardener when she found the tomb empty?

Did she retire to the wilderness and was nourished by angels who lifted her aloft seven times a day?

Did she have long blonde hair and wear red dresses as portrayed in various paintings?

As Christ is not a surname but means ‘The Anointed One’ did this name come about from the time Mary anointed his feet with oil?

If you have any further questions don’t ask us, just send a postcard to the Vatican.

Mary Magdalene is now the darling of New Testament sermons. She looks after all females working at the oldest profession and also spares some blessings for Druggists, Pharmacists and Chemists.
