JESUS? CALL AND CHOICE OF THE TWELVE
Today we celebrate the feast of two Apostles, Sts. Simon the Zealot and Jude Thaddeus. In lists of the Twelve Apostles (like that in our Gospel today), these two names are always one after the other. Tradition has it that both were martyred in Persia. Simon is known as the Zealot, meaning to say he was probably a member of that radical politico-religious group determined to resist the Roman occupation of Judea. St. Jude Thaddeus, on the other hand, spoke with Jesus during the Last Supper and is also known as the Patron Saint of Desperate Cases.
Sts. Simon and Jude, apostles and martyrs, pray for us.
The FEAST is one of the happiest places on earth.
