St. Simon and St. Jude: October 28

While not much is shared about St. Simon or St. Jude past the pages of the Gospel, we know with certainty they were key individuals in helping to lay the foundations of the Church. 

Jesus called his disciples from varied backgrounds. Together they overcame unimaginable difficulties. In a private reflection, Pope Benedict once shared his thoughts on why Jude, the saint of the impossible, is paired with Simon the zealot.

All Saints Day

On Nov. 1, we honor the host of saints in Heaven. By honoring the saints we honor God, who made them holy.

Today is an invitation for each one of us on earth to strive after our own holiness— to live a life based on the examples of the saints. Like he did with the saints, God is calling us to be holy, to seek an abundance of grace.
