Wise Words for the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene

Loved reading these wise words from Elizabeth Cunningham about celebrating incarnation on this feast day of St. Mary Magdalene. Hope they resonate with you as well:

"I would like to declare July 22nd a feast day to celebrate our incarnation on this earth, something all of us alive and who have ever lived share with all life and life to come. We are made of the same substance; we are subject to the same joys and sufferings of the flesh. From a laboring woman’s body we were born; and the mystery of death awaits us."
