St. James the Lesser

Apostle James the Lesser

Jesus chose twelve men to be His apostles.  Saint James the Lesser was one of these men.  He was the son of Mary and Alpheus, also known as Clopas.  His brother was named Joses.  Mark 15:40 40 And there were also women beholding from afar: among whom were both Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;

It is possible that Saint James Lesser was the brother of the apostle, Matthew but this is only speculation.  Some historians believe the Blessed Virgin Mary was the sister of Mary, the mother of Saint James Lesser.
