Pop-Up Catechesis: St. Mary Magdalene and Sharing the Good News

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

With the advent of social media, each of us now has the opportunity to be the herald of news, good or bad. And with that, of course, comes the desire to “break the story” and scoop everyone else. If there were a patron saint for this it would be St. Mary Magdalene, the first to announce the Resurrection of Jesus to others! In today’s Pop-Up Catechesis, we look at the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene (July 22) and how this great saint inspires each of us to announce the Good News to others.
