St. John was the brother of Saint James the Greater. Both saints were originally fisherman as was their father, Zebedee. St. John may have been the youngest of the Apostles but he did not lack spirit. The writer of a Gospel, several Epistles, and the Book of Revelation, we can learn much of St. John from the Holy Scriptures. In this lesson we will study the life of St. John as presented in the Gospels, in the writings of the Church Fathers, and in the Catechism. We will also learn several prayers to him and have an engaging activity in honor of St. John.
