St. Philip and St. James the Apostles' Day
These martyrs learned the lesson Jesus had to teach that day, that they should not look beyond him, for he who has seen him has seen the Father. So they themselves were martyred, Philip by crucifixion, and James while crying out "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do." They found glory in the cross of Jesus, and in their own martyrdoms. This recording contains the Gospel chanted, as well as the sermon.
