The first-martyred Holy Apostle James †44

  The Apostle James, son of Zebedee, was a simple fisherman who left his nets to follow our Lord Jesus Christ as one of his twelve disciples. Empowered by the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost fifty days after Christ’s resurrection, the Apostle James preached the gospel in Judea, Samaria, and Spain. He was the first apostle to be martyred for Christ. His relics rest in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. He is an intercessor before the Throne of God, especially for people with rheumatism and arthritis.

His Feast Day is April 30.
