Today is the feast day of St. Mary Magdalene, whose story of being a follower of Christ is probably one of my favorites. Tonight, we pray,

Almighty God, whose blessed Son restored Mary Magdalene to health of body and of mind, and called her to be a witness of his resurrection: Mercifully grant that by your grace we may be healed from all our infirmities and know you in the power of the his unending life; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

-BCP, 242
