Saint Mary Cleophas

2493

Very little is known about St. Mary Cleophas. She was one of the “three Marys” who followed Our Lord and stood at the foot of the Cross on Calvary and who went to the tomb. She was the wife of Saint Cleophas, the brother of Saint Joseph, and the mother of Saint James the Less.

According to legend, Saint Mary of Cleophas was put on a boat with others by the Jews in the year 47, and pushed out to sea without sails or oars. She died in France. 

The island in France where she landed, after her miraculous journey from Jerusalem, is called les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (”the Holy Marys of the Sea”), named for Saint Mary of Cleophas, Saint Mary Magdalen and Saint Mary Salome.
