In Other News, Mary Magdalene…

… I know it’s an exciting news day. The Pope’s in Rio taking a joy ride and throwing caution to the wind.

Kate had her baby.

But bosh all that. I have more important things to post about. Today is my patron saint day, the memorial of St. Mary Magdalene. The first penitent. The only other woman who was closest to Christ besides His Mother. Mary, whom much was forgiven. Mary, whose love of the Lord was profoundly great.
