July 19 - Based on some of the depictions of Mary Magdalene, it always strikes me as ironic that we call her Saint. Some early portrayals confused her with other women of the New Testament, thus being painted as a street worker. In fact, we don't know her background. But we do know that she ended up the Apostle to the Apostles, telling them of the Risen Christ. In 2016 the Pope raised her Tuesday 22nd memorial to a Feast Day. May we elevate the status of all women in the Church.
