St. Philip and St. James, Apostles
More detailsSt. Philip, from the same town as Peter and Andrew, Bethsaida in Galilee, was called by Jesus. He was martyred in the first century in Hierapolis. St. James, the Just, also known as the lesser (smaller, younger), to avoid confusion in the first century in with James the greater, was the son of Alphaeus of Cleophas. He is the author of the Epistle of James and the first bishop of Jerusalem. Eusebius notes that James was martyred for the faith in 62 A.D.

Lectio

Jesus said to Thomas, “I am the way and the truth and the life. Ho one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, then you will also know my father. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” Philip said to him, “Master, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time and still you do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own. The Father who dwells in me is doing his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else, believe because of the works themselves. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father. And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.” (Jn 14:6 -14) 

Contemplatio: 

One hand held by Jesus, another hand by Mama Mary through her Rosary, let us be carried by them safely back to the Father now, always, and at the hour of our death. To the Father through Jesus with the Holy Spirit; to Jesus through Mama  Mary with his Mystical Body, the Holy Mother Church!
