Saint Philip
Written by Margaret Odrowaz-Sypniewska, B.F.A.

St. Philip lived in the 1st century. He was a disciple of John the Baptist, and was a married man with two daughters. Philip was the Third Apostle called by Jesus. Philip helped serve the loaves of bread and fish at the picnic following the Sermon on the Mount. After Pentecost, Philip traveled to Phrygia, where a hideous dragon, with terrible breath, guarded a staue of Mars. Philip performed an exorcism, in the course of which the beast breathed on the son of a local dignitary and killed him. The citizens then proceded to stone Philip to death.

His feast day is May 3rd.
