Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles

October 28, 2020
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Luke 6:12-16
Audio file

We don’t have detailed knowledge about the apostles Simon and Jude, but we do know something about them. They were called by Jesus to be his apostles, and they were to represent him and proclaim his message.

We all bear some similarity to Simon and Jude. We have all been called by Jesus to be with him and learn from him. This call came at the initiative of Jesus. We didn’t decide to be apostles. Jesus decided to invite us. This call involves responsibility to represent the Lord–to announce the news of his salvation. We may not be professionally trained spokesmen for Jesus, but we are his representatives nonetheless.

The feasts of the apostles serve to remind us of who and what we are.
