St. Mary of Egypt was a typical girl many today can relate too. St. Mary was a twelve year old girl who found herself bored with life. She became a runaway leaving behind her family and loved ones because she wanted to be a singer and an actress. She loved to perform so she left for Alexandria Egypt where she became a prostitute. How tragic this is as we see this happening today.

At some point in her young life, her lifestyle was taking a heavy toll on her life and she began to cry out for help. Do we not see this today? People just hide themselves in drugs and other things that helps them cope with their lifestyle. St. Mary, after about 17 years of this lifestyle she left Alexandria and found herself wondering in Palestine looking for answers, looking for help when she noticed a large crowd of people gathering.

There she led a very dissolute life for 16 years.  At some point in her young life, her lifestyle was taking a heavy toll on her life and she began to cry out for help. Do we not see this today? People just hide themselves in drugs and other things that helps them cope with their lifestyle. St. Mary, after about 17 years of this lifestyle she left Alexandria and found herself wondering in Palestine looking for answers, looking for help when she noticed a large crowd of people gathering.  

But this crowd was different from then men she had known for so long, this particular day was a major feast celebrating the Holy Cross of Christ. Mary goes into the Church and coming upon an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary, something tremendous takes place within her. Just like the woman Jesus spoke to at the well, Mary found herself thirsting for that water that will never run dry. Like the woman caught in adultery, Mary found herself among Jesus family and she too wanted that forgiveness.
