Almighty God, whose blessed Son restored Mary Magdalene to health of body and mind, and called her to be a witness of his resurrection: Mercifully grant that by thy grace we may be healed of all our infirmities and know thee in the power of his endless life; who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, now and for ever.
Today is the feast of St Mary Magdalene, one of the most popular figures in church art. Here, she greets the disciples after the Resurrection in glass by Hugh Powell, 1963 at Little Horkesley, Essex, and stands more thoughtfully by Edward Burne-Jones at Thornham Magna, Suffolk. pic.twitter.com/Nn7PU756Sg
