St. Mary Magdalene

For almost all my life up until about eight years ago, I thought that St. Mary Magdalene was the same woman as the penitent sinner who showed up at a dinner where Jesus was a guest.

Simon the Pharisee invited Jesus to dinner, and an unnamed sinner, more accurately described as an immoral woman, entered the house and lovingly wet Jesus's feet with her tears, then wiped and kissed Jesus's feet with her hair.

There is also another Mary who anointed Jesus with expensive perfumed oils during another dinner, this time in Bethany.

How could all these women be identified as one? The video will explain the circumstances under which this conflation occurred.


My name's Anna Maria, and I publish a new video on YouTube's Touched by Grace Today and a new post on my blog every Friday! (Day may change due to holidays.) Check out for my other articles! If you've been #tbgtoday, feel free to share your story of grace here.
