Feast of Saints Philip and James

John 14:6-14

Like the other members of their company, Philip and James come to Jesus with all their doubts and misunderstandings, their fears and failures. Yet, empowered by the promised Spirit, Philip and James become part of the foundation of the Church of the Risen One. Through them, we come to know the Jesus they knew; we are taught by the Jesus who taught them; we carry on the work of reconciliation that Jesus entrusted to them.
