Sts. Philip and James

Philip and james

Though each was an apostle of the Lord, each was very different. James, observant Jew not insistent on imposing Jewish law on Gentile converts, was the first bishop of Jerusalem and conferred with St. Paul on the mission of the early church. Philip recruited Nathaniel and was rebuked by Jesus in this morning's gospel for failing to understand that Jesus and the Father are One.

The diversity of the Universal Catholic Church was established from the beginning and should be seen as a strength not a weakness. Let us pray for a spirit of mutual respect as we each follow the Lord.
