St. James the greater

Saint James the Greater

Saint James the Greater was the son of Zebedee and Salome.  Saint James and his brother John the Evangelist were called by Jesus to become two of the twelve Apostles.  They both left their father’s fishing boat and followed Jesus.

Saint James was chosen by Jesus to be a witness to His Transfiguration.  The Transfiguration of Jesus took place on a mountain where Jesus was surrounded by a bright light and began speaking to Moses and Elijah.

Saint James the Apostle Patron Saint

The remains of Saint James are located in the city of Santiago de Compostela which is the third holiest city in Catholicism.  His remains were taken to Spain by his followers because Herod Agrippa would not allow him to be buried.  Pilgrims visit the grave of Saint James along the path known as, Way of St. James.  This is one of the most popular pilgrimages for Roman Catholics.  Many of them wear a Saint James medal or a Saint James medallion as they travel to pray at the burial place of Saint James the Apostle.  The Cathedral of Santiago was built on the burial ground of Saint James and blessed in 1211.

Prayer to St. James the Great

O gracious God, we remember before you today your servant and apostle James, first among the Twelve to suffer martyrdom for the Name of Jesus Christ; and we pray that you will pour out upon the leaders of your Church that spirit of self-denying service by which alone they may have true authority among your people; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
