Saint Simon and Saint Jude, celebrated on October 28, are two of the lesser-known apostles of Jesus Christ. Simon is sometimes referred to as “Simon the Zealot” or “Simon the Cananean” to distinguish him from Simon Peter. Jude, also known as Thaddeus, is often confused with Judas Iscariot. Both apostles were chosen by Jesus to be part of the Twelve Apostles and are mentioned in the New Testament. Little is known about their individual contributions or their lives after the crucifixion of Jesus. Devotion to these apostles has grown over time, and they are venerated as saints in the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox traditions, symbolizing the call to faith and service even in obscurity and difficulty.
