The Feast of Philip & James Readings

Two apostles that do not get as much attention as some of the others, James (the Lesser, the son of Alphaeus) and Philip are nevertheless wonderful examples for us:

  • They made mistakes, yet kept their eyes on Jesus
  • They did much of their work without special attention or praise
  • They offered their lives for the Lord

May they inspire us to live our faith with conviction each and ever day!
