Feast of St. Mary Magdelene

Today is the feast of my beloved Confirmation saint, the penitent, Mary Magdelene.



Happy feast day ... happy fault ... happy to be Catholic.

Thanks, St. Mary Magdelene, for your intercession over the years.

I know it is meant to be her alabaster bottle next to her but I always am reminded (and did you point this out to me?) that it looks like a coffee cup. Which makes her again perfect for you. Happy Day.

You pointed it out to me, Tanita, last year! :) I'm predictable in rerunning this picture, but I love it so.
