These two saints are deeply linked with the last discourse of our Lord before the Passion: ‘Philip said to him [Jesus], “Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father”’. In addition, St James is known as the pilgrim saint of Compostela, and he is shown here together with his pilgrim staff.


Both saints point directly and indirectly to our Lord as the Way, the Truth and the Life. May we follow their leading, wherever it may take us, and may God bless you in your journey.
