Available on backorder
(Jacob, Jakob, Giacomo, Jacques, Santiago, Iago, Jaime, Diego, Diogo, Jaume) [died 44 AD], so styled because of the great pilgrimage shrine in Spain, was one of the Twelve Apostles and brother of St. John Evangelist. Popular tradition has it that St. James brought the Gospel to Spain and Compostella enshrines his relics. Because of the incident related in the 9th chapter of St. Luke, verse 54, St. James may aptly be considered patron of all who struggle through life with a quick temper. He is also patron of all pilgrims, of laborers, of rheumatism, of Chile, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Spain. His feast is July 25.
