On April 29, the Holy Father sent a letter to Cardinal Ennio Antonelli, the Archbishop of Florence, commemorating the 400th anniversary of the death of Carmelite St. Mary Magdalene de' Pazzi. An English translation of the letter are available from the Vatican and Zenit. Here is an excerpt in my translation:
"Sister Mary Magdalene had the gift of living communion with God in an ever more interiorized form, so as to become a model for the whole community, and even today she continues to be thought of as "mother". Purified love, which pulsed through her heart, opened her to the desire for full conformity to Christ, her Spouse, to the point of sharing with Him the 'naked suffering' of the cross."
