The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has issued a decree raising the obligatory memorial of St. Mary Magdalene, celebrated on July 22, to the dignity of a feast.

In its decree, dated June 3 and released on June 10, the Congregation has published a new proper Latin preface for the feast that will be translated into other languages.

Feast days, such as the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (May 31) and the Feast of St. Andrew (November 30), have their own proper readings at Mass. On feast days, the Gloria is recited at Mass, as is the Te Deum in the Office of Readings. Feast days rank below the dignity of solemnities, in which there is also a second reading before the Gospel and the Creed is also said at Mass.

The decree states that in our times, the Church is called to a more profound reflection “on the dignity of women, the new evangelization, and the abundance of the mystery of divine mercy,” all of which are manifest in the life of the saint.

It was downgraded in 1969 as part of a general downgrading of everything.

Actually, I believe it had already been downgraded in 1962, but the 1969 liturgical changes downgraded it even further.
