The friends of Jesus and Mary

The friends of Jesus and Mary

Lazarus of Bethany and his sisters Martha and Mary were among the most intimate friends of the Lord and His Mother.

In addition to the Twelve Apostles, there were also the 72 disciples that Jesus sent two by two on mission and who were with the Apostles the first evangelizers.

There was also the group of holy women, including several relatives of the Blessed Virgin or close friends and mothers of the apostles, who followed Jesus and His teachings, and came to listen to the Lord assiduously.
