The memorial of Saint Mary Magdalene, who, having been freed by the Lord from seven demons and become his disciple, followed him all the way to Calvary and early Easter morning merited to see the Savior rising and to bear the news of his resurrection to the other disciples.
May Holy Mary and all the saints intercede to the Lord for us, that we may merit to be helped and saved by him who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
V. Precious in the sight of the Lord
R. Is the death of his holy ones.
V. May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life. And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
