On the Third Day of Christmas

December 27
Feast of Saint John, apostle and evangelist

On the third day of Christmas and through the Divine Office, I had the pleasant experience of being reacquainted with Saint John the Evangelist, who was also one of the Twelve Apostles and is better known the blessed guy at the foot of the Cross to whom the dying Jesus entrusted the Blessed Mother.

Here he is with the other three evangelists. He is the young man in white.

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
