We ask for the intercession of Saint Philip with these quality prayer cards. St. Philip was beside Jesus for two of the most well-loved Gospel stories of Jesus: the wedding at Cana and the multiplication of the loaves and fishes. Originally a disciple of John the Baptist, he answered the call of Jesus. The Gospels paint him as a serious, conscientious man who, like the other Apostles, were slow to truly recognize Jesus as the Messiah. St. Philip, of Greek ancestry, was especially instrumental in bringing Gentiles to the Church. As with St. Peter and the other Apostles, we see how Jesus works with their humanity to preach to the ends of the earth.
