Saint Mary Magdalene. The holy scent of the Simonos Petras Monastery
“The honest left hand springing from grace of the Holy, glorious Myrrh and the same with the Apostles Mary Magdalene, is a blessing for our monastery and a holy praise, wealth and fame for the Holy Mountain, but also a sincere scent of the Church of Christ.
The Feast of the Blessed Sacrament is brilliantly celebrated in our holy monastery on July 22nd. Saint Mary Magdalene together with Saint Pious Simon the Fountain of Myrrh constitute the two pillars and founders of the Simonos Petras Monastery. The need to publish a book covering the life, party and place of St. Magdalene among the disciples of Christ, her courageous attitude to the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ and, in general, her apostolic activity, as well as those concerning the confusion that has arisen regarding to her virginal purity, we were often preoccupied.
