One of the Twelve Apostles, James is the brother of Saint John the Evangelist. He was the first Apostle martyred by King Agrippa. An interesting theory about him is that he may be the cousin of Christ because Mary may be his aunt. He is a patron of Spain, laborers, arthritis, blacksmiths, pilgrims, tanners and veterinarians. Feast day is July 25.
