St. Lazarus

Gospel Reading of Saint Lazarus

Saint Lazarus is mentioned in the parable of Jesus about Lazarus, the poor leper, and the rich man.

(Luke 16:19-31) 19"There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21and longing to eat what fell from the rich man's table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

 22"The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23In hell,[a] where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away,

  with Lazarus by his side. 24So he called to him, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.'

25"But Abraham replied, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.'

 27"He answered, 'Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father's house, 28for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.'

 29"Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.'

 30" 'No, father Abraham,' he said, 'but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.'

 31"He said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.' "

The Order of Saint Lazarus

During the 12th century, the Order of Saint Lazarus was established to aid those suffering from leprosy. The religious order took Saint Lazarus as their patron. The lepers were nursed by other lepers who also performed military duties. The Order of Saint Lazarus built a hospital for those suffering from leprosy in the northern part of Jerusalem.

Feast of Saint Lazarus

St. Lazarus Day is celebrated on June 21. On this day many Catholics wear a Saint Lazarus medal or a Saint Lazarus pendant as a reminder of the parable Jesus taught about the rich man and Lazarus. Saint Lazarus is a reminder to all that worldly riches do not offer the promise of eternal life.
