St. John the Evangelist feast today

The Catholic Church and devotees of St.John the Evangelist commemorate his feast day today with masses and novenas in his honor. The youngest of the 12 apostles of Jesus, he is called the evangelist having written the Fourth Gospel of the Holy Bible. St.John is the son of Zebedee and the brother of St. James the Great. The brothers were fishermen who were called by Jesus "to become fishers of men." Jesus nicknamed them "Boarneges" meaning Sons of Thunder.

He was the "disciple whom Jesus Loved" (John 13:23) and was present in many important events in Jesusa life on earth. He was the only witness during the raising of Jairusa daughter (Mark 5:37) and was present during the Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1) and Jesusa Agony in the Garden of Gethsemani (Matthew 26:37).

St.John was the only apostle who stood at the foot of the cross where he received the sublime mission to care for the Mother of the Lord. (Christina I. Hermoso)
