ST  JAMES

St  James  is  one  of  the  12  Apostles   He  is  the  brother  of  John.   With  St  Peter,  they  appear  to  have  a   special  place  among  the  other  Apostles:   they  are  present  at  important  events   such  as  when  Jesus  was  praying  in  the   Garden  of  Gethsemane  on  the  night   before  His  crucifixion.  

St  James  is  the   Patron  Saint  of  Spain.

 James’  was  martyred  (killed  for   following  Jesus)  by  King  Herod.


The  Apostles  spread  around  the   world  preaching  about  Jesus.  James   went  to  Spain.   After  his  martyrdom  in  Jerusalem,  his   body  was  returned  to  Spain  in  a  stone   boat,  which  legend  says  was  carried  by   angels  to  Finisterre  from  where  the  local   queen  brought  it  inland.   HIs  tomb  was  rediscovered  in  the  9th   century  after  a  vision  in  which  a  hermit,   Pelayo,  was  led  to  St  James’  grave.   Since  then  it  has  been  an  important   centre  of  pilgrimage.

St  James  is  the  Patron   Saint  of  Spain.

El Camino de Santiago The  most  popular  route  is  known  as  the  ‘Camino  Francés’.   It  begins  in  France  at  St  Jean  Pied  de  Port.   This  route  was  followed  in  the  film  starring  Martin  Sheen  called   ‘The  Way’
