Now Her Day a Feast
St. Mary Magdalene, the first to announce the resurrection of Jesus, has been celebrated with a Memorial on 22 July in the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. Pope Francis decreed today that the church will now celebrate her day as a Feast. It is the same rank the Apostles enjoy on their celebrations. Inés San Martín included some comments by Archbishop Arthur Roche—Secretary of the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments—in her column at Crux.
