St. James the Less, a brother of the Apostle Jude, was of Cana of Galilee.
He is the author of the Epistle of St. James in the New Testament, a book that is
devout and edifying as well as highly practical. He was favored by an appearance
of the Risen Christ (I Cor. 15:7). After the dispersion of the Apostles he was made
Bishop of Jerusalem. He was visited by St. Paul (Gal. 1:19). He spoke after Peter at
the meeting of the Apostles (Acts 15:13). St. Paul tells us he was a witness of the
Resurrection of Christ; he is also a "pillar" of the Church, whom St. Paul consulted
about the Gospel.
When he refused to deny the Divinity of Christ, the Jews cast him down
from the terrace of the temple and clubbed him to death. The Breviary contains a
very moving description of his death. "When he was ninety-six years old and had governed the Church for thirty
years in a most holy manner, the Jews sought to stone him, then took him to the pinnacle of the temple and cast
him off headlong. As he lay there half dead, with legs broken by the fall, he lifted his hands toward heaven and
prayed to God for the salvation of his enemies, saying: ‘Lord, forgive them for they know not what they do!’ While
the apostle was still praying, a fuller struck his head a mortal blow.”
His relics now rest next to those of St. Philip in the church of the Holy Apostles in Rome, and their names
are mentioned in the first list in the Canon of the Mass.
James is sometimes referred to as the ‘brother of Jesus.’ In the days of Jesus, the word “brother” had
another meaning other than being a biological brother. In Jewish culture the Jewish people made reference to each
other as “brothers” and “sisters.” When introduced, this identified them as “one of them,” as a Jewish person. To
complicate the matter, the Hebrew language did not contain a word that meant “cousin.” Instead, the word “brother”
was used for both, the words “brother” and “cousin.” When the Jewish scholars translated the early Church writings
from Hebrew to Greek, they literally translated the word “brother” as “brother.” Since they were accustomed to the
word that could mean either “brother” or “cousin,” they did not believe that it was necessary to define when it
means “brother” or when it means “cousin.” Therefore, in an instance where a reference might be made to a cousin
of Jesus, the word “brother” was applied. While this person may have been a blood relative, he was not a biological
upon the generous support of all who join with us in the
celebration of the Lord’s presence in the Eucharist, which
really means “thanksgiving.” What we offer to God through our
donations is also a sign of our thanksgiving to God for his
generosity. Without your help and support, our Chapel and
Campus Ministry cannot function. Please be generous as God is
generous to you in many ways. “God loves a cheerful giver.”
St. Mary’s is not a traditional parish. We must rely on
financial support from persons who understand the very
important role of campus ministry in the nurture of Catholic
youth. We are a dynamic growing ministry and need your
support. Consider a 1 to 4 year financial commitment through
our Living Faith Society.
