Mary Immaculate of Lourdes Bulletin for the week of July 22, 2012


Front cover:  A stained glass window which shows Christ with Mary Magdalene and her sister Martha.  The Scripture scene depicted is from St. Luke, Chapter 10:38-42.  Mary Magdalene sits at Christ’s feet, while Martha is busy with the duties of hospitality.  Christ says: “Martha, Martha, thou art careful, and art troubled about many things: but one thing is necessary.  Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.”  In the liturgical tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, Mary Magdalene is identified with the sister of Martha and Lazarus at Bethany, as well as the unnamed sinner-woman of Luke 7.  St. Mary Magdalene’s feast-day is July 22nd and her sister St. Martha’s is a week later on July 29th.
