Saints Philip and James,
Pray for us
Philip and James were simple, common, ordinary individuals. Jesus saw something in each one of them, however, if only their potential. We “look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” (1 Sam. 16:7) What God expects from all of us, whatever our other strengths may be, is faithfulness. Fidelity to Christ is the chief mark of every true disciple..
