Saints Simon and Jude

Saint of the Day October 28

Posted from FranciscanMedia.org

Legend has it that Saints Simon and Jude traveled to Persia together where they were both martyred. This may explain why they share the same feast day. Saint Simon is usually referred to as “the Zealot,” and Saint Jude, also known as Thaddeus, is often considered the brother of Saint James the Lesser.
