Feast Day of Saints Simon and Jude
Our gospel reading for today is a list of the 12 chosen apostles of Our Lord. We rarely hear anything about Simon and Jude. But that should give us great hope and courage. We must strive for excellence in our lives, spiritual excellence. Obviously these two men did just that in following Our Lord. As followers of Jesus, we may never be famous. We may never even be remembered by anyone other than our family. But as long as we are faithful followers of Jesus and strive daily to do God’s Will, we will be great in God’s Eyes. And nothing else matters.
Saints Simon and Jude, pray for us to strive in obscurity.
