Feast of St James


Saint James, son of Zebedee and brother of Saint John the Apostle, was born in 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 Compostella in Spain where a famous church is dedicated to his name.

O God and giver of all good gifts, you sent your Apostle James to prepare the earth’s soil to receive the good seed who is you Word made flesh, Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Through the works of evangelisation, prepare all hearts to welcome with joy the Word of life, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen
