Today, July 22, is the feast day of Mary Magdalene. Mary Magdalene is first witness to Jesus’ resurrection in all four Gospels. She was among the women from Galilee who follow Jesus and provide for him out of their resources. From early Christianity she has been called “the apostle to the apostles”, the bringer of good news to them and to us all. You can read her story, as well as the stories of 14 other women of faith, in Sister Joan Mitchell’s book Holy Women of Luke’s Gospel.
