Saints of the Week(s)

Last week we celebrated the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also called The Dormition (or falling asleep) with a Mass and a potluck. That feast commemorates the body of the Blessed Mother being taken up into heaven, just as were Enoch and Elijah in the Old Testament. This week, Friday is the feast of St. Bartholomew the Apostle. But what do we know about him? Lesser Feasts and Fasts tells us a little:

Bartholomew is one of the twelve Apostles known to us only by his being listed among them in the Gospels according to Matthew,Mark, and Luke. His name means "Son of Tolmai." …. There is a tradition that Bartholomew traveled to India,and Eusebius reports that when Pantaenus of Alexandria visited India, between 150 and 200, he found there "the Gospel according to Matthew" in Hebrew, which had been left behind by" Bartholomew, one of the Apostles." An ancient tradition maintains that Bartholomew was flayed alive at Albanopolis in Armenia. (c) 1995 Church Pension Fund.Used By Permission.

Not a lot to go on, is it? An often quoted saying is "if you were charged with being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?" We might relate that to St. Bartholomew and ask "will future generations know more about your Christian life than we do about St. Bartholomew?"

When was the last time you invited someone to come with you to Mass?
