O glorious Apostle, Saint James, who by reason of thy ferventand generous heart was chosen by Jesus to be witness of His glory on Mount Tabor, and of His agony in Gethsemane; thou whose very name is a symbol of warfare and victory: obtain for us strength and consolation in the unending warfare of this life, that having constantly and generously followed Jesus, we may be victors in the strife and deserve to receive the victor's crown in Heaven.

Amen

The brother of the Apostle John, James is one of the three disciples that was privileged to be present at the most significant events in Jesus' ministry
James the Greater
Pope Benedict XVI
On Wednesday, 21 June, at the General Audience held in St. Peter's Square, the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, continuing his portraits of the Apostles, reflected on St. James the Greater, whose famous Shrine at Santiago de Compostela is still honoured as a pilgrimage destination. St. James, the Pope said, was one of the three "privileged disciples" who Jesus allowed to witness important events in his life, including his Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane and his Transfiguration. The following is a translation of the Holy Father's Catechesis, which was given in Italian.

Beyond Sunday Campaign Underway!
June 28, 2015
Our parish is embarking on Beyond Sunday, an Archdiocesan-wide campaign conducted by the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri to strengthen parishes and Catholic Education throughout the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
With our generous Beyond Sunday funding, we will invest in our parish by addressing its most pressing needs. We will also invest in the Roman Catholic Foundation’s Education Fund, which will provide funding solutions to transform Catholic education throughout the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
A Campaign Leadership Committee of parishioners, led by Perry Farrow & Aona DeClue, will be working with the Roman Catholic Foundation staff on this exciting initiative. All of our registered parishioners will be contacted in the coming months with details on Beyond Sunday and a request for financial support. For more information, please visit www.beyondsundaystl.org, or contact Perry at 573-438-2672 or EMAIL stjameschurch@century link.net
