Feast Day of Apostles, St. Simon and St. Jude



PRAYER TO STS. SIMON AND JUDE,
APOSTLES FEAST DAY: OCTOBER 28

Father, you revealed yourself to us through the preaching of your apostles Simon and Jude. By their prayers, give your Church continued growth and increase the number of those who believe in you. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

 Little is known of these two apostles, whose names are always linked in the Gospel accounts. Simon is called the Zealot, and Jude “son of James”.
