Whether you are of the Catholic Religion or not – I am sure you will be overjoyed to know that Pope Francis has made a new decree bumping the liturgical celebration honouring St. Mary Magdalene from a memorial to a feast, putting her on par with the apostles. The feast day is July 22nd – Today!
When John and I were in France last year we were aware the Knight’s Templars revered her and all along the South of France many churches we visited, depicted her with long red hair along with an equal sided cross somewhere on the church walls – connecting it to the Knights Templars. My father was a Freemason – a Grand Master – who also knew her to be an apostle. His birthday was July 22nd. Let us rejoice that at last St. Mary Magdalene has been recognised for who she truly is.
