Today, Wednesday May 3, the Catholic Church honors San Felipe and San Santiago el Menor.

They are part of the twelve apostles chosen by Jesus.

According to the Vatican website, they are remembered on the same day because their relics were brought simultaneously from Ierapoli and from Jerusalem to Rome in the sixth century.

His relics are venerated in the church called “De los Santos ApĆ³stoles”. Both died as martyrs.
