St. James Feast Day

In this prayer to Saint James the Apostle,
the faithful ask for the strength to fight
the good fight, as James did, in order to be 
worthy followers of Christ.

Prayer to Saint James the Apostle

O glorious Apostle Saint James, who by reason of thy
fervent and generous heart was chosen by Jesus to be a witness
of His glory on Mount Tabor, and of His agony in Gethsemane.

Thou, whose very name is a symbol of warfare and 
victory, obtain for us strength and consolation in the unending 
warfare of this life, that, having constantly and generously followed
Jesus, we may be victors in the strife and deserve to receive the
Victor’s crown in Heaven.

Amen.
