"From the depth of her degradation, she raised her eyes to Jesus with sorrow, hope, and love. She said not a word but bathed His feet with her tears, wiped them with her hair of her head, kissed them in humility, and at their touch her sins and her stain were gone.
Once again, on the eve of His passion, she brought the precious ointment, and, now purified and beloved, poured it on his head, and the whole house of God is still filled with fragrance of her anointing.
She stood with Our Lady and St. John at the foot of the cross, the representative of the many who have had much forgiven.
To her first, after His blessed Mother, Our Lord gave the certainty of his resurrection; and to her first He made Himself known, calling her by her name, because she was His."
-Little Pictorial Lives of the Saints
Many people do not know what happened to Mary Magdalene after the beginning of the spread of the Gospels. She, her brother Lazarus and others were put into an oarless and sailless boat and pushed off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
Instead of drowning or dying of starvation the group landed in Gaul (Modern-day France). There, Mary the sinner, climbed a mountain cliff guided by an angel and there she spent many years in a cave. On a clear day, on the top off the mountain, she could gaze out and see beyond the sea to Palestine and behold the land were Our Lord walked. When her end drew near she received her Lord and then peacefully fell asleep in death.
Her scull is preserved uncorrupt in Saint Maximin la Sainte Baume, France, and pilgrims may walk up the steep slope to visit the cave in which this saint spent so many years.
Her feast day is July 22.
