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.

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
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.

"I want to thank everyone who attended Church this past
week-end and listened to the message of UNBOUND. The
Gospel was a great introduction to our ministry and everyone
understood the cost of discipleship when we commit ourselves
to the Lord. Because of your generosity and support
we have 27 children who now can be assured of support from
another person from our church. What a beautiful experience
for all of us. It was also a privilege to celebrate the Eucharist
with you. I always enjoy sharing our memories of the 80's
when we worked and prayed together. God bless you, Fr. Rich
