Apostle and Martyr.

Saint Bartholomew (son of Ptolemy) is supposed to be Nathanael himself, whose first interview with Jesus is described by Saint John in his Gospel. (John 1:45)

He evangelized India, from where he went to Greater Armenia. He suffered the cruel martyrdom of being skinned alive. His sacred body is venerated in a church dedicated to his name, on the island of Tiber in Rome.

The mystical body of Christ, which is the Church, is made up of a great diversity of members, each with their own office, and the main one being the Apostles.

V: Saint Bartholomew.
A: Pray for us.
