Icons of St. Mary Magdalene

Back to WESTERN SAINTS ICONS

Icons of St. Mary Magdalene, equal-to-the-Apostles, co-apostle of Southern Gaul

Feast: July 22 (also Mar. 19, May 5, and Apr. 7)

According to French Orthodox tradition, St. Mary Magdalene came to southern Gaul and preached the Faith there, ending her life as a recluse in a cave. In the Western Liturgy, her Feast is liturgically treated as the Feast of an Apostle.

Her feasts are July 22 (repose), March 19 (translation of her Relics), April 7 (her conversion), and May 5 (another translation of her Relics).

Top Icon: from Holy Dormition Orthodox Church, Cumberland, Rhode Island.

Next Icon: Hieromonk Cassien, Greek Old Calendar Hermitage, Clara, France

Next Icon: from St. John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Cathedral, Washington, D.C., shown here with permission of Fr. Victor Potapov. 

Final Icon: available from St. Isaac of Syria Skete. After it are shown the main reliquary of St. Mary Magdalene at Vezelay, France, and the reliquary that contains a portion of her arm.


 

A note on the icon graphics we host on this site, including the above icon: 
St. John Cassian Press does not "carry," i.e., reproduce, sell, or stock these icons. Those who wish to acquire icons should contact the icon's producer / distributor, if shown; otherwise, an icon maker or distributor should be contacted (a cursory list appears on the main Icons page).
