Commemorated on April 9

Mary of Cleophas, matron (First Century): One of the more colorful legends associated with the name of Mary of Cleophas is the one that connects her with the coming of Lazarus, Mary Magdalene, and Martha to Provence. Mary of Cleophas’ body was believed to repose at Saintes-Maries near the mouth of the Rhone.
