Saint for the Day - October 28 - Sts. Simon &
Simon was a simple
Galilean, called by Our Lord to be one of the
pillars of His Church. Zelotes, "the zealot," was
the surname which he bore among the disciples. Armed
with this zeal he went forth to the combat against
unbelief and sin, and made conquest of many souls
for His divine Lord.
The apostle Jude, whom the Church commemorates on
the same day, was a brother of St. James the Less.
They were called "brethren of the Lord," on account
of their relationship to His Blessed Mother. St.
Jude preached first in Mesopotamia, as St. Simon did
in Egypt; and finally they both met in Persia, where
they won their crown together. -
October 28 enables those of the Catholic faith to
acknowledge God as the source of all our help every day.
