FaithIn All Things
James Martin, S.J.
Today is the feast day of St. Mary Magdalene, one of the most misunderstood of all saints.  In this excerpt from A Jesuit Off-Broadway, I relate her (true) tale and how her life intersected with that of the gifted actress who would portray her in the play "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot."

From our archives, 2003.

In 2013, America published the first issue of a Jesuit journal written and edited entirely by women. In that groundbreaking issue, the editors announced that America would continue to make the role of women in the life of the church a top editorial priority. But soon after making that commitment in 2013, we encountered a big problem. When our editors started to look for data about what Catholic women think about various issues, we could not find any. No such survey had ever been done.
