Saturday, August 24, 2019SAINT BARTHOLOMEW
Little is known about Bartholomew, other than that he was one of the twelve apostles and that he was present at the Ascension.
Some are said to have seen Saint Bart in India, others in Armenia, and still others on Park Avenue.
O Almighty and everlasting God, who didst give to thine apostle Bartholomew grace truly to believe and to preach thy Word: Grant, we beseech thee, unto thy Church to love what he believed and to preach what he taught; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
