Saint Simon and Saint Jude

28 October is the deast day of two of the apostles, Saints Simon and Jude.

The introductory note for todays Divine Office entry reads:
The name of Simon is placed eleventh in the list of apostles and nothing is known of him except that he was born at Cana and was known as the Zealot.
Jude, also known as Thaddeus, was the apostle who, at the Last Supper, asked the Lord why he showed himself only to his disciples and not to the world (John 14:22)
Saint Simon - pray for us
Saint Jude - pray for us
