St. Mary Magdalene is one of the greatest saints of the Bible and a legendary example of God's mercy and grace. The precise dates of her birth and death are unknown, but we do know she was present with Christ during his public ministry, death and resurrection. She is mentioned at least a dozen times in the Gospels.

Mary Magdalene has long been regarded as a prostitute or sexually immoral in western Christianity, but this is not supported in the scriptures. It is believed she was a Jewish woman who lived among Gentiles, living as they did.

The Gospels agree that Mary was originally a great sinner. Jesus cast seven demons out of her when he met her. After this, she told several women she associated with and these women also became followers.

There is also debate over if Mary Magdalene is the same unnamed women, a sinner, who weeps and washes Jesus' feet with her hair in the Gospel of John. Scholars are skeptical this is the same person. Despite the scholarly dispute over her background, what she did in her subsequent life, after meeting Jesus, is much more significant. She was certainly a sinner whom Jesus saved, giving us an example of how no person is beyond the saving grace of God.

During Jesus' ministry, it is believed that Mary Magdalene followed him, part of a semipermanent entourage who served Jesus and his Disciples.

Mary likely watched the crucifixion from a distance along with the other women who followed Christ during His ministry. Mary was present when Christ rose from the dead, visiting his tomb to anoint his body only to find the stone rolled away and Christ, very much alive, sitting at the place they laid Him. She was the first witness to His resurrection.

After the death of Christ, a legend states that she remained among the early Christians. After fourteen years, she was allegedly put into a boat by Jews, along with several other saints of the early Church, and set adrift without sails or oars. The boat landed in southern France, where she spent the remaining years of her life living in solitude, in a cave. St. Mary Magdalene's feast day is July 22. She is the patroness of converts, repentant sinners, sexual temptation, pharmacists, tanners and women, and many other places and causes.

Scripture Insights

The prophet Jeremiah’s cry, “Woe to the shepherds,” is a judgement on Israel’s leaders for misleading and scattering the sheep (the people of Israel) in their care. In Jeremiah and Psalm 23, God is the Good Shepherd who feeds his people, protects them, and does not lose one of them. Jeremiah points forward to Christ through his promise that God will “raise up a righteous shoot to David,” a king who will govern with wisdom and justice.

When Jesus views the people as “sheep without a shepherd,” he likewise condemns Israel’s leaders for failing to care for, guide, and protect the people (Mark 6:34; cf. Jeremiah 50:6, Numbers 27:17; 2 Chronicles 18:16). The disciples have just returned from their mission to proclaim the Gospel and to heal. They have attracted so much attention that they don’t even have time to eat, so Jesus tells them to come away to quiet place to rest (“in verdant pastures he gives me repose”). The crowd discovers where the group has planned to retreat and arrives at their destination first. When Jesus sees the people, he is “moved with pity.” the Greek word here means “to be deeply moved,” for one’s insides to churn with emotion. Rather than escape the crowds, Jesus takes up the role of their shepherd and teaches them.

In Ephesians, Paul tells of how Christ has united the Israelites, who were heirs of the covenant, with the Gentiles, who were not. In the verse the precedes today’s reading, Paul reminds his Gentile congregation in Ephesus that they once were “strangers to the covenants of promise, without hope and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12). They have now been brought near to God through Christ, whose death destroyed the barrier between Jew and Gentile and created one new humanity, at peace with God.

Jesus’ invitation to the apostles and to us to continue his work is a sign of the Good Shepherd’s continued care for his flock. The church nourishes us as we seek the face of God in the poor and those on the margins. It is where we learn to tell of God’s promise that the Shepherd provides us with all we need.
