Saint Mary Magdalene

O God of glory and of love, Mary Magdalene stood by the cross of your Son Jesus Christ and witnessed the wonder of his Resurrection. Through her example and her prayer, inspire all those whom you have brought to new life in the waters of baptism with the zeal to ­proclaim the Gospel in freedom and in joy. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen
