Book of Saints – Mary Salome

Saint Mary SalomeArticle

(Saint) (October 22) (1st century) One of the “Three Marys.” She was the wife of Zebedee and the mother of the two Apostles, Saint James the Greater and Saint John the Evangelist. She was one of the holy women who followed and ministered to Our Lord at His Crucifixion and Burial, and who were witnesses to His Resurrection. Tradition brings her afterwards to the South of Gaul, and points to her tomb in an island at the mouth of the Rhone. Her relics, concealed during the dangers of the great Revolution, have been replaced in her church there.
