Narrative: The first we know of Mary of Magdala is that she was healed by Jesus after anointing His feet. It is said that He expelled seven demons from her. Mary then became a follower of Christ and ministered to Him. She was believed to be as close to Jesus as were the disciples. Later, she was one of the women who stayed with Jesus at the foot of the cross after the disciples had fled. Most notably, it was to her that Christ first appeared after His resurrection and instructed her to inform His disciples.
In this icon she holds a red egg in her hand. After the resurrection, Caesar doubted that it was possible for Jesus to have risen from the dead and likened it to an egg turning red. Mary then picked up an egg which quickly turned red. (This narrative is printed on the back of Note Cards. A copy is included with each plaque and photo.)
