Today is the Feast of St. James, Apostle, son of Zebedee and brother of St. John. He was one of the three apostles Our Lord chose to witness the Transfiguration, as shown in this icon by Fr. Thomas Loya (poor James’ head didn’t make it in this depiction, but most of him is there to the lower right).

I also have this icon of the other St. James, known as the brother of Jesus, whom we believe was actually a cousin, and an early leader of the Jerusalem Church.

That reminds me, I just attended the 5:30pm mass at a Jesuit church, and their liturgy for today was different. They even have the 2nd reading. Also, the homily focused purely on the life of St. Ignatius.
