Saint Mary Magdalen de Pazzi

A little drop of simple obedience is worth a million times more than a whole vase of the choicest contemplation. ~ St. Mary Magdalen de’ Pazzi

maria5bI’m renewed to call upon another saint to intercede on my behalf—St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi.

St. Mary Magdalen of Pazzi chose me for the year.

On the occasion of the New Year 1935 Saint Maria Faustina made this entry in her spiritual Diary:
"Jesus likes to intervene in the smallest details of our life. And He often fulfills secret wishes of mine that I sometimes hide from Him, although I know that from Him nothing can be hidden. There is a custom among us of drawing by lot on New Year's Day, special patrons for ourselves for the whole year...”

~ Saint Maria Faustina

Come! Consume in us whatever prevents us from being consumed in you.  ~from the writings of Saint Mary Magdalene de Pazzi





Saint Mary Magdalene de Pazzi, pray that we will make a commitment to seek the presence of God in prayer the way you did. Guide us to see the graces God gives us as gifts not rewards and to respond with gratitude and humility, not pride and selfishness. Amen

“Mother of Charity,” and “the Charity of the Monastery.” ~ Ora pro nobis

  1. Dear Jesus and Mary Magdalene de Pazzi,
    Reading about your life today your feast day. I pray to our Lord and Saviour our beloved Jesus Christ that all the seculars who devote themselves to doing the will of their Father in Heaven and listen to the prayers of His son can be so truly blessed to love contemplation and the holy eucharist as you do.
    Pray for all your children please to love the Holy Communion like all the Holy Saints.
    In your loving Mercy Lord Jesus.
