St. Mary Magdalen in ecstasy.
I prefer the traditional stories about the Magdalene. She is a patron saint of mine because of her penitence - or great love. Years ago I visited Ste. Baume as a pilgrim and wished I might have stayed there as a hermit. At the time the Dominicans who had custody of the sanctuary were not very hospitable and snickered at the pious belief that the Magdalene took refuge there. One can actually grow accustomed to mockery and prefer it to praise.
St. Mary Magdalene, pray for us that we may love Jesus more than we loved sin in the past.
