St John


Saint John, who is also known as John the Evangelist, was one of the Twelve Apostle. He is generally believed to have been the youngest of all of the disciples and his elder brother James was also one of the Twelve Apostle. Saint John is well known as the author of the Gospel of John and four other books in the New Testament - the three Epistles of John and the Book of Revelation. In the Gospel of John, he claims that it is based on the "Beloved Disciple’s’" testimony. Saint John was a loyal and close friend of Jesus. He features in many Bible stories of the New Testament. John witnessed the raising of Jairus' daughter, he was sent with Peter to make preparations for the Last Supper and when Jesus was crucified, he faithfully stood, alone of all the disciples, with Mary at the foot of the cross. After the Ascension, Saint John played a leading role in establishing and promoting the early church.


The feast day of Saint John is celebrated on 27th December. Saint John is the patron saint of love, loyalty, friendships, and authors.
