Saint Mary Magdalene birth and death dates are unknown, but she was born by the western shore of the sea of Galilee in the town of Magdala. She was canonized pre-congergational which mean before the canonization process was formed. Mary Magdalene is known as the patron saint of contemplative life, converts, glove makers, hairdressers, penitent sinners, people ridiculed for their pity, perfumeries, pharmacists, sexual temptation, tanners, and women. She is often seen with a box of ointment, a book, vase of sweet spices, crucifix, an open book, and a boat. She is known for having Jesus cast seven demons out of her and later following in the footsteps of Christ. She turned her life as a sinner around and worked towards being more united with Christ. We should work to be like Saint Mary Magdalene in our daily lives.
