Today is the feast of Saint Philip and Saint James, apostles with ambiguous storylines and confusingly common names.
St. Philip and St. James are almost unknown people. Yet clearly they mattered to Jesus.
St. Philip and St. James remind us that ordinary people responding to Jesus Christ can change the course of human history – whether you celebrate them at home today or tomorrow.
I didn’t start celebrating saints days when my kids were little. But I can still start now.
