St. Mary Magdalene

The Gospel of Luke tells us that Jesus cast seven demons out of Mary Magdalene (see Luke 8:2). Her gratitude for Christ’s loving deliverance led her to become His faithful follower. She stood faithfully at the foot of Jesus’ cross with Mary and John. She came early to His tomb the next morning to anoint His body, and thus she became the first of His followers to learn that Christ had risen!
