Prayer to Mary Magdeline

Mary Magdeline, you have suffered. What today would be thought of as a mental disease was then proof of demons. Yet, Jesus saw something in you. Tradition tells us that it was to you He first appeared after the resurrection (Mark 16:9). I ask that you help me be more understanding of others when they deal with their own demons — and of myself as I deal with mine. Give me the courage to follow my destiny, as you left all you knew to follow yours.
This is my wish. So mote it be.
