The Life of Saint Salome: Filled with fervent piety, she was among the women who followed Christ and ministered to Him and His disciples…
This beautiful Icon is of the Mother of God with her Son Our Lord Jesus Christ. To her right is Saint Elizabeth with Saint John the Baptist, and to her left is Saint Salome with Saint John the Beloved. These Holy Women were all first cousins because their mothers, Saint Anna, Sobea and Maria, were all sisters and daughters to the High Priest Matthas and his wife Maria. Saint John’s mother, Saint Salome, was married to Zebedee, and she was a daughter of Saint Joseph the Betrothed.
