Virgin, died 84. She was the sister of Lazarus, and Mary of Bethany, and shared the honor of Christ's friendship when He stayed as their Guest in Bethany. She also served Him in the house of Simon the Leper, and because of her solicitous care for His physical comfort she is taken as the example of the practical religious life. Her love for Christ grew, and she remained faithful to Him during His Passion and Resurrection. Tradition holds that she migrated with Lazarus and Mary to Tarascon, in France, where she lived in great austerity and piety for seven years, and that her tomb is now situated there. Many miracles are credited to her intercession. Patroness of cooks. Emblems: a holy water sprinkler, and a dragon. Feast, Roman Calendar, July 29,. See also: patron saints index.
