Jesus My Lord, You chose Saints Philip and James to be two of Your first disciples, because they so openly and obviously loved God, and then You sent them out as apostles to share what they had learned. As a baptized Christian, I, too, have been called to be an apostle, right where I am—in my home, my church, my workplace, and my neighborhood, using the love I have learned from You. Help me to share the Good News by the way I live my life more than by the words I speak. Strengthen my virtues so that people experience You when they encounter me. Saints Philip and James, pray for me. Amen.
