Mary, called Magdalene, Joanna, Susanna, and many others—the women who accompanied Jesus and the Twelve as they journeyed from one town and village to another. These courageous women continued to follow Jesus and were witnesses to his death and resurrection.
Lord Jesus Christ, grant us the grace to follow you wherever you go, just like these faithful women. Increase our faith. Help us to do your will. Amen.MARY, JOANNA, SUSANNA, AND ALL HOLY WOMEN, INTERCEDE FOR US.Thus says the Lord: Let whoever is thirsty come to me and drink.Streams of living water will flow from within the one who believes in me.(Communion Antiphon, Mass)
