Saint James, it was because of your passionate and magnanimous heart that Jesus chose you to witness His glory on Mount Tabor, and of His agony in the garden of Gethsemane. Oh Saint James, your name is a symbol of warfare and victory, therefore we pray that that you intercede for us to God so that we can obtain strength and consolation in the wars we encounter in this life.
May you also intercede for us to God so that we get help and strength to continue fulfilling the mandate He has given to us. May we seek to serve others more than we seek to be served as this is one of the surest ways of pleasing our Heavenly Father and earning a place at the right and left side of Jesus Christ in Heaven. Amen.
