Daily homily thoughts, 5/3

St James the Less (aka James the YOUNGER)
brother of St Jude, 1st bishop of Jerusalem, presided over Counci of Jerusalem in 50AD, likely the author of Epistle of James, his mother Mary was present at the Cross on Good Fri, and he died by being clubbed to death in 62AD

St Philip
Preached in Greece and Syria, the Greeks flocked to him, at the feeding of the 5000 he told Jesus they had not enough bread, a letter fragment found from Peter to Philip suggests Philip had run away from his ministry perhaps for a hwlie, or at least the apostles, buried upside down on a cross for having converted the wife of a government official

St James and St Philip, pray for us
