Tomorrow, July 22nd, is Magdalene Day. The Church long believed this was her birthday and celebrated the 22nd of July every year as the Feast Day of Mary Magdalene. The beautiful painting below shows Magdalene as the wife of Jesus and mother of his children. An ancient manuscript suggests Jesus married Mary Magdalene as explained inÂ one of my favorite articles on the subject of Jesus’ marriage to “the Magdalene”. Â Magdalene is a title meaning “great” because Mary Magdalene was ordained the First Lady of Christianity.
