Mary Magdalene (feast day July, 22), was a Jewish woman who, according to texts included in the New Testament, traveled with Jesus as one of his followers. She is said to have witnessed Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. Within the four Gospels she is named at least 12 times, more than most of the apostles. The Gospel of Luke says seven demons had gone out of her, and the longer ending of Mark says Jesus had cast seven demons out of her. There is an ancient tradition that she was the sister of Lazarus whom Jesus raised from the dead, and the “sinful woman” (Luke 7:37ff.) who bathed Jesus feet with her tears, and whose sins he pardoned. Most scholars think that Mary Magdalene indeed was the “apostle to the apostles’ who first saw Jesus risen from the dead and announced that resurrection to the apostles; however, that the “sinful woman” and the sister of Lazarus were other women also named Mary.

Kateri Tekakwitha, a young Native American of the Mohawk tribe (in present day upstate New York), converted to Catholicism as a result of the evangelization efforts of the Jesuit missionaries, some of whom are known today as the North American Martyrs. Kateri lived a saintly virginal life and died at the age of 24 in 1680. After her death she appeared to one of the priests who knew her and asked him to paint a portrait of her. He objected on the grounds that he was not an artist. She insisted, and he did so. Notice she has straight hair. Braids were worn by married Mohawk women. The blue veil was worn to shade her Smallpoxdamaged eyes from the sun. She was the first Native American to be canonized (10/21/12 by Benedict XVI). Her remains are in St. Francis Xavier Church in Caughnawaga, Canada. Her feast day is July 14.
