The Apostle Bartholomew is not very well known, at least to me. Bartholomew is listed among the Twelve Apostles of Jesus in the three synoptic gospels: Matthew,[10:1–4] Mark,[3:13–19] and Luke,[6:12–16] and also appears as one of the witnesses of the Ascension[Acts 1:4,12,13]; on each occasion, however, he is named in the company of Philip. He is not mentioned by the name Bartholomew in the Gospel of John, however, it is thought that Nathaniel, who is mentioned with Phillip, is another name for Bartholomew.
My quote for today is from St. Madeleine Sophie:
"All things require time and patience, and above all, confidence in Our Lord."
Jesus asks us to trust Him, confide in Him, and all will be well.
And here is another to give us peace: "To will only what God wills is the way to enjoy peace."
Have a good day!
