Missionary of Charity Brothers and co-workers, Calcutta
"The more lively the Eucharistic
faith of the people of God,
the deeper is its sharing in ecclesial life
in steadfast commitment to the mission entrusted
by Christ to His disciples(Sacramentum Caritatis, 6).
Sts Simon and Jude
Apostles, Martyrs (approx 65 AD)
FEAST DAY - October 28
"Just as Christ was sent by the Father, so also He sent the apostles, filled with the Holy Spirit. This He did so that, by preaching the gospel to every creature (cf. Mark 16:15), they might proclaim that the Son of God, by His death and resurrection, had freed us from the power of Satan (cf. Acts 26:18) and from death, and brought us into the kingdom of His Father" ~ Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy
O God, we thank you for the glorious company of the apostles,
and especially on this day for Simon and Jude; and we pray that,
as they were faithful and zealous in their mission,
so may we with ardent devotion make known the love and mercy
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
Sts. Simon and Jude, ora pro nobis!
