October 4, 2015 - "THE APOSTLE JAMES”

Saint James, the son of Alpheus, was one of the original twelve Apostles of our Lord and deserves to be better known among us today. He was not one to seek glory and fame and perhaps that is why the story of his life is not as widely known. Let’s take a look at some interesting things about this great Christian.

St. James was the first Bishop of Jerusalem. Being the leader of the “Mother Church” of Christendom he occupied a most important position. It was St. James who presided at the first council held in Jerusalem and there gave the final decree that converts to the Christian faith need not submit to certain rites of Old Law.

He is considered to be the writer of the Epistle of St. James in the New Testament. In this work, he tells of the healing power of prayer, especially when the sick are anointed with oil in the name of the Lord.

The apostle is often referred to as St. James the Just. No doubt this name was given to him because of the diligent faithful way in which he fulfilled his duties as Apostle and Bishop. As he carried on our Lord’s work, then enemies of Christ became his enemies. Eventually these Jewish leaders plotted his death. He was thrown from the church and finally struck with clubs and stones. St. James died as a martyr for the Lord in the year 61, being over 90 years of age at the time. He is said to have been buried in a tomb at the Mount of Olives. He was surely one of the pillars of the Early Church and we would do well to keep sacred his memory.
