July 25: Feast of Saint James, Apostle

Public Notices ,

Almighty ever-living God,
who consecrated the
first fruits of your Apostles
by the blood of Saint James,
grant, we pray, 
that your Church
may be strengthened 
by his confession of faith and
constantly sustained by his protection.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
your Son, who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
