Pray for us.
St. Mary Magdalen,
Sister of Martha and
Thou who didst enter the Pharisee's house to anoint the feet of Jesus,
Who didst wash His feet with thy tears,
Who didst dry them with thy hair,
Who didst cover them with kisses,
Who wast vindicated by Jesus before the proud Pharisee,
Who from Jesus received the pardon of thy sins,
Who before darkness wast restored to light,
Mirror of penance,
Disciple of Our Lord,
Wounded with the love of Christ,
Most dear to the Heart of Jesus,
Last at the Cross of Jesus, first at His tomb,
Thou who wast the first to see Jesus risen,
Whose forehead was sanctified by the touch of thy risen Master,
Apostle of apostles,
Who didst choose the "better part,"
Who lived for many years in solitude being miraculously fed,
Who wast visited by Angels seven times a day,
Sweet advocate of sinners,
Spouse of the King of Glory,
V. Saint Mary Magdalen, earnestly intercede for us with thy Divine
R. That we may
share thy happiness in
Let Us Pray.
May the glorious merits of blessed Mary Magdalen, we beseech Thee, O
make our offerings acceptable to Thee, for Thine only-begotten Son
graciously to accept the humble service she rendered. We ask this
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, God forever and
ever. R. Amen.
May the prayers of blessed Mary Magdalen help
us, O Lord, for it
was in answer to them
that Thou didst call her brother Lazarus, four days after death, back
from the grave to life,
Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, Unity in
world without end. R. Amen.
