St. James the Greater Comments

For James there was no indication that this was the day that his life would change. The dawn for him was not the bright beginning of a new day, but the end of long fruitless night of fishing. As James sat mending his nets in the boat with his brother John and his father Zebedee, he must have watched in wonder as his partner Simon brought in nets loaded with fish he had caught at the command of Jesus. Was he shocked when he saw Simon and his ... Continue Reading

    Thanks alot to my Parents for giving me my 7/25/1943 middle Saint name of "Santiago" (James) !!! It is beautiful to know that he was special to Jesus and was one of the first martyrs of the Church. King Herod Agrippa I killed him with a sword in an early persecution of the Church. Nice to know he is the patron saint of hatmakers, rheumatoid sufferers, and laborers.

    St James please watch over my nephew Nico, who is born today on your feast day. Have him serve and live a life that is pleasing to the Lord. Please ask Jesus to draw his parents together. But not our will but our Father in heaven's be done. Amen.

    St. James is awesome! I named my son after St. James. I like your article but I have to tell you that there is a word error in the 4th paragraph up from the bottom. I'm sure you meant to use the word "confused" instead of "accused." Other than that, great article!

    St. James, my Namesake and Patron Saint, pray for me to attain the glory of Heaven as you did. Help to obtain for me the grace to show my Faith through my Good Work. All these I ask through Jesus Christ, our Lord!

    Dear St. James, of late I've been interested in the pilgrimage to St. Tiago of Compostella. It seems so real yet I wonder if I'll be able to make it. Walking the distance is doubtful...but still I'd like to see your tombstone and your burial place and the cathedral that stands there in your honour. St. James you are remembered in Spain as a warrior, soldier who fought the onslaught of Muslim attack on Catholic Spain. Likewise fight a big, unseen, and subtle war that is made on the Catholic Church in my beloved country. You do battle for us dear St. James, for all polemics are based on lies and meant to create suspicion. Protect all Catholics from the terrible scourge of marrying a Muslim spouse as this means a forced conversion. Pray for my grandson too. Heal him completely of the scourge of fragile X, of epilyptic fits, ear infection etc. and all the pervasive developmental delays. May he learn, progress and flourish. Amen

    I am trying to follow Jesus to become a priest, my baptist name is James the Greater. I would like to ask Saint James to pray for me this year. I hope I can purify my vocation and follow Jesus to be a priest later. And may I have ur bravery inside my heart.

    Saint James the Greater is the Patron Saint of our home town in the Philippines. Saint James is also the Patron Saint of Spain and of the Philippines, one of Spain's country colonies. Saint James the Greater, pray for us! ☺ ☼

    I love my patron saint. I thank my parents for naming me after his name. Glad to hear that he is very close relative of Jesus the Lord my Redeemer and Good Shepherd. I will follow him like my saint. I want to die as martyr. this is my desire from the day of my ordination.
