    Patron of repentant sinners and the contemplative life.

    One of the followers of Christ, Mary Magdalene has been identified as the woman who anointed Jesus' feet with a precious oil. She was the first person to see the Risen Christ. On Easter Day she was weeping near the empty tomb when she saw a man who she thought was a gardener. He asked her why she was weeping. She replied: "Sir if you have carried him away tell me where to and I will come and take him."

    The man was Jesus. He told her to go and tell the others what she had seen.

    There are many apocryphal legends about Mary. In France it said that she evangelised Provence with her sister Martha and brother Lazarus. Hundreds of churches across Europe are dedicated to her.

    Miriam from Magdala was certainly an amazing woman and it is entirly proper to honor her and her actions. She is certainly an example to us all of repentance and devotion.

    But the Miriam that was sister to Martha and Lazarus was from Bethany, not Magdala.

    In the back of the icon of St. Mary Magdalene is written: You who are most pure of all women.
