Bishop and Martyr
He was a close relative of Christ, as the son of Cleopas and Mary, the Virgin’s first cousin. He was the second Bishop of Jerusalem, after James the Less. At the age of one hundred and twenty, with Trajan reigning, persecuted for his faith and for his kinship with Christ, the pagans themselves admired the strength with which that old man suffered the torment of the cross.
