Friday, April 1, 2022 – The Fourth Week of Lent
St. Mary of Egypt
St. Mary of Egypt was a prostitute who joined a group of pilgrims headed to attend the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Her intention: lure them into sin. When she attempted to enter the church, an invisible force turned her away until she prayed before a statue of Mary in the courtyard. She pleaded for forgiveness and then was allowed entrance to venerate the relic of the True Cross. In prayer she was told to cross into Jordan; she did so and went on to live as a hermitess for the next 50 years. When a priest found her, she asked him to return the following year and bring her the Eucharist. He did so and found her deceased. She is the patron of reformed prostitutes and sexual temptation.
