Shout Out to St. Mary Clopas

St. Mary Clopas may not be an obscure saint of the day, but she definitely deserves mention for being awesome, especially here on her feast!


St. Mary Clopas was present, live and in person, at the crucifixion! 

She was the mother of James (the lesser, poor guy) and Joseph, the wife of Cleophas, and accompanied Mary Magdalen to the tomb!!

One tradition has her eventually going to Spain as a missionary, and another has her traveling to france with St. Lazarus and his two sisters. 

The stories St. Mary Clopas could tell. Wow!

St. Mary Clopas, pray for us!!
