FEAST OF ST. JOHN THE BELOVED APOSTLE
DECEMBER 27: FEAST OF ST. JOHN THE BELOVED APOSTLE
The apostle St. John, is also known as the Beloved Apostle. He was the only apostle who did not forsake Jesus on the way to Calvary. St. John accompanied Jesus during His Passion and remained with Him as He hung on the Cross. John, the beloved apostle, was very dear to Jesus, hence the word “beloved” is an appropriate description of this apostle.
On this feast of St. John the beloved apostle, let us pray for his intercession to grow in our love for Jesus in a most personal and tender way. May each of us yearn to become beloved followers of Christ.
