Church of the Mother of God on the Lake, Bled, Slovenia (May 21)
Statue of Mary Magdalene
“Then Jesus turned toward the woman while he was speaking to Simon, ‘Don’t you see this woman? When I came into your house, you did not even give me water for my feet, but she has washed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. You did not kiss me when I entered your home, but she has been kissing my feet since I came in. You did not anoint my head, but she poured perfume on my feet. Listen to me, Simon; her innumerable sins are forgiven, so she pours out great love. But the person who is forgiven just a little will love only a little.’”
Gospel of Luke 7: 44-47 (translation mine)
The Scriptures do not name this woman so we don’t know if she is Magdalene or not. “Tradition” named this woman as St. Mary from Magdala.
