This lovely medal shows St Mary Magdalene with long flowing hair and holding a jar. These are Mary Magdalen's attributes in art since she is known as the woman who broke a jar of precious perfume over the feet of Christ and then wiped them with her hair. This is one of the few moments in the life of Jesus that is recorded in all four gospels.
Mary Magdalene is known in the Bible as the woman who reformed her life when she began to follow Jesus. She is associated with the woman from whom Jesus cast out seven demons and who washed his feet with her tears and dried them with her long hair in thanksgiving for forgiveness of her sins. She was with the virgin Mary at the foot of the cross when Jesus was crucified. She went back to his tomb on the following Sunday and was one of the first to see the risen Christ. She is typically shown in art as a woman with long hair holding a jar of perfume or a skull while deep in contemplation.
This medal is made of sterling silver and will come with a matching holy card in an organza gift bag, so it's ready to give as a present to someone else or yourself.
