Feast of St James

Saint James, son of Zebedee and brother of Saint John the Apostle, was born at Bethsaida.  He was present at most of the miracles peformed by Christ and was put to death by Herod around the year 42.  He is especially honoured at Compostela in Spain, where his body is enshrined in a sanctuary, famed as a site of pilgrimage.

St. James the Greater<br>Apostle

Saint James, pray for us that we may be willing to leave everything to follow Jesus as you did. Help us to become special friends of Jesus as you were. Amen
