Who was Mary Magdalene?

Who was Mary Magdalene?

Today, 22 July, we celebrate the feast of Mary Magdalene. Who exactly was Mary Magdalene? She was an apostle of Jesus Christ, the same as the other 12 apostles who were commissioned to spread the story of Jesus.  She was the leader of the women that traveled with Jesus, was present at Jesus’ crucifixion, prepared his body for burial, and was the first to witness and speak to his resurrected body on Easter morning.
