“St. Paul of the Cross considered this converted soul, deeply in love with Christ, who stood courageously at the foot of the cross, who guarded the tomb, who sought to complete the embalming of Christ’s body and received the first announcement of the resurrection, as a model of conversion and of full union with God.

According to witnesses, St. Paul of the Cross declared St. Mary Magdalene ”joint protectress” of the Passionist Congregation.

In his letters she is frequently presented as protectress in overcoming temptations and keeping faithful to the love of Christ.”

– History of the Passionists, Fr. Fabiano Giorgini, C.P. Volume 1, page 327.

O God, whose Only Begotten Son entrusted Mary Magdalene before all others with announcing the great joy of the Resurrection, grant, we pray, that through her intercession and example we may proclaim the living Christ and come to see him reigning in your glory. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.  | Roman Missal, p. 952
