Prayer of the Day
Feast of St. James, ApostleJuly 25th, 2014
In this Epistle we are encouraged to let our light shine in the darkness – this light that has shone in our lives – the light of the Gospel. We are urged to share this light – we are saved through the life, death and Resurrection of the God who has become man for us, Jesus.
St. James, son of Zebedee and brother of John, called the Greater. He was put to death by Herod Agrippa about the year 44, being the first of the Apostles to die for Christ. His shrine is at Compostella in Spain.
