SEND YOUR PRAYERS AND WE WILL TAKE THEM TO THE CAVE IN FRANCE….
You have a unique opportunity of being able to submit prayers and/or special intentions to our website where they will be transcribed onto beautiful cards that will be carried by those on the NOVENA PILGRIMAGE ….to La Sainte-Baume, the Cave of Mary Magdalene in the South of France, on her Feast Day—July 22nd!
The Feast Day Procession up to the Cave begins below the mountain at the Hostellerie-de-la-Sainte-Baume, the priory of the Dominican brethren and a place where pilgrims stay throughout the year. The pilgrims will gather around the Relic of Saint Mary Magdalene and the Dominicans will sing and pray as they carry the Relic in procession on the long walk through the prairie, entering the forest and then climbing up the steep mountain to the Cave. Saint Mary Magdalene Feast Day Mass will be celebrated in La Sainte-Baume, the Cave where Mary Magdalene spent the last thirty years of her life in prayer and contemplation.
Listen to the song “Early Christian Saints of God”

SUBMIT YOUR PRAYER REQUEST….
Submit as many prayers as you have in your heart. The prayer cards will be carried up to the Cave and placed on the Rock of Penitence behind the altar in front of the statue of Saint Mary Magdalene.
Prayer for the Intercession of Saint Mary MagdaleneSaint Mary Magdalene, Oh holy companion of Jesus, you assisted Jesus and the apostles during His public ministry. You cried with the Blessed Mother and Saint John at the foot of the cross, and watched as they buried His dead body. For serving Jesus with a love devout, you were the first to see Him resurrected. We ask you to pray for us and for our special intentions. Amen.
