Saint Paul of the Cross and St. Mary Magdalene

“Among the female saints he (St. Paul of the Cross) venerated with special affection was St. Mary Magdalene, to whom be bore a very fervent devotion, sang Mass on the day dedicated to her, and made it a feast in the Passionist Rule. He used to say, to encourage others in this devotion, that after the Blessed Virgin Mary this great saint was, of all the women, the one that loved God the most.”

– from the Life of Blessed Paul of the Cross by Fr. Vincent Strambi, C.P.
