†The Holy Apostle Bartholomew†

The Holy Apostle Bartholomew, one of the Twelve,  preached the Gospel with the Apostle Philip in Syria and Asia Minor (modern Turkey).  In the ancient city of Hieropolis, they were crucified. An earthquake caused such a fright that the people took the apostles down from their crosses. The Apostle Philip, though, had died, but the Apostle Bartholomew survived.

He continued to preach and work wonders in the power of Christ through the Holy Spirit in India and Armenia, and many turned to the Lord. In Armenia he was first crucified upside down, then flayed and beheaded. His relics are now in Rome.

He is counted in the West as an intercessor for persons with nervous conditions and neurological diseases.
