Feast of Saint Mary Magdalene.

Almighty God,
whose Son restored Mary Magdalene
to health of mind and body
and called her to be a witness to his resurrection:
forgive us our sins, we beseech thee,
and heal us by thy grace,
that we may serve thee in the power of his risen life;
who liveth and reigneth with thee,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
