Christian tradition says that John the Evangelist was the Apostle John – one of the “pillars” of the Jerusalem church after Jesus’ death. He was one of Christ’s original twelve apostles and is the only one to live into old age and not be killed for his faith.

St John’s Prayer

Holy Father, teach me Your Word.

Holy Son, reveal Yourself to me.

Holy Spirit – cleanse me with Your Holiness.

Saint Brendan of Clonfert (c. 484 – c. 577) called “the Navigator”, “the Voyager”, or “the Bold” is one of the early Irish monastic saints. He is chiefly renowned for his legendary quest to the “Isle of the Blessed.” He was one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland.
