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

    This was somewhat helpful, but it did not use very good wording. I did not understand part of some paragraphs, but overall, it was okay. Good for writing reports.

    I have been praying a lot lately asking God to comfort me during this trying time I am having. It was early saturday morning. I was laying in bed awake but with my eyes closed. I had a quick vision of something I wasn't sure of. A voice of a man I'd never heard before said, "This is your faith... You will see... I am sorry." I got out of bed and thought about what just happened to me. I looked on the internet to find out what a saint is and what they look like. Sure enough, I believe the vision I had was a saint giving me a message of hope.

    I had a dream last night and in the dream I was standing at a white board in a classroom and someone was having me write Santiago on the board. I woke up from the dream (very early in the morning on a Saturday) and I couldn't get the name Santiago out of my head. I live in a rural area - this is not a name I see every day. I was lying there, trying to recall some of my knowledge of the Spanish language because I had a sense that God was trying to tell me something through this dream. I prayed that God help me understand. After about an hour, I realized that I could not go back to sleep, so I got up and went to the computer to search the meaning of Santiago. I found this site. I am still not exactly sure what God is trying to tell me, but there is a lot going on in my life right now concerning my faith and my church. God is good.

    why would you choose him as a confirmation saint?

    James clearly got stronger and stronger the more he followed Jesus. Did he know that following Jesus would cost him a lot? He did know that not following Jesus would cost him eternity.
