n: Mary Magdalene Repents
We read in the second book of Kings (Sam), Chapter 12 that Nathan the prophet had been sent to David to reprove him; but David himself, the king, led by penitence, obtained mercy from God. David, in his penitence, typified Mary Magdalene in her penitence, who won the pardon of all her sins.

We read in Numbers 12 that Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron, became leprous for her sin, and was healed from her uncleanness by Moses. Moses is a type of Christ, who cleansed Mary Magdalene from all the uncleanness of her sins, as Himself testifies in St. Luke, saying, "Thy sins are forgiven thee."
Ezek. 28.22. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him. (Ps. 51.17). A broken and a contrite heart, O Lord, Thou wilt not despise.

Nathan, by his word moving the heart of the king, corrects his wicked deeds. She, made leprous, by penance is made clean again
Zacharias 1.3 Turn thee unto Me (saith the Lord of Hosts), and I will turn unto you. 2 Sam 7.22. David. For there is none like Thee, neither is there any God besides thee.
So, the fount of goodness absolves this woman from her sins!
