Here are over 20 true stories of women who had been guilty of adultery, murder, fornication and abortion, plus engaged in hatred, envy, lying and other sins — yet found forgiveness, mercy, healing and peace through Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Starting with the great St. Mary Magdalen, out of whom Our Lord had cast seven devils, the stories continue, often giving a whole new picture of some of the most famous and infamous women in secular and Church history.
These women were as passionate in atonement as they had formerly been in sin. Some had been rejected by their partners in sin; others had to make a supreme effort and tear themselves away. Some had children. Some were punished by civil law. Some had to turn their backs on riches. Some had to disentangle themselves from political relationships. But all received the mercy and healing of Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church.
And how did they spend the rest of their lives? This book answers that question, showing the elements of a pattern of holy repentance and redemption that would be repeated till the End of Time by many other Great Magdalens. (From the Back Cover)
