Today, July 22, is the Catholic Feast Day of Mary Magdalene. While I’m not Catholic, I have no issue celebrating Mary Magdalene. Here is a prayer involving Mary which is from the book “A Manual for the Gnostic: Doctrines, Prayers, & Practices of the Gnostic Church” issued by the L’Eglise Gnostique Apostolique of North America.
O Mary Magdalene, Beloved of the King of the Universe, Sacred Daughter, Queen of the Earth who is one with the Mother of Heaven, Immersed in the ethereal Light, Consort Eclipsed for Centuries, We pray for you coming in Fullness, Mystical Magdalene, prophetess, Emerge from the Shadows, Let your time come now, Through these your mysteries we would draw you nearer to us, Sister most dear to us, You who were most faithful to the Gnosis, Mistress of the Brightest Day, coming Virgin of the Light, Let your brilliance illuminate the night, And bring us closer to the heavenly Light, Amen. Holy Mary Magdalene, woman of many sins, who by conversion became the Holy Consort of Jesus, thank you for your witness that Christ forgives through the miracle of love. You, who possessed the Gnosis please intercede for me, so that some day I may share in the same everlasting joy and grace. Amen.
