Saint James’s Day

Today, October 23 is the fest of Saint James of Jerusalem, the “brother of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Read about his place in the Bible here.

Prayer for the Day

Grant, O God, that, following the example of your servant James the Just, brother of our Lord, your Church may give itself continually to prayer and to the reconciliation of all who are at variance and enmity; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
