Church https://www.stfrancisdesales.ca/news/st-anne-and-st-joachim/

The gospels are bereft of details regarding Mary’s parents – Jesus’ grandparents – not even offering their names. What we do know comes from writings excluded the canon of Scripture, in particular the Protogospel of James. Nevertheless, the cult of Saint Anne existed in the 6th century in the Church of Constantinople and early in the 8th century in Rome. In the 13th and 14th centuries, popular devotion to Anne increased, as seen by the number of churches bearing her name. At the request of some English bishops petitioned by parishioners, Pope Urban VI made her feast an annual celebration. Joachim has been honoured in the East from earliest days, but in the West only since the 16th century. Their names were entered into the Roman calendar in 1584.

The Feast of the Transfiguration has been observed on this day by the universal Church since the 15th century. The experience on Mount Tabor is one where Jesus reveals his divinity, and invites us all into a similar mystical encounter. The path up that mountain proceeds through prayer, and on this feast we are encouraged to read and reflect upon the biblical account of the Transfiguration.

Saint Lawrence suffered his martyrdom in the year 258, three days after Sixtus II and six other deacons. A defender of the Church in Rome, he was one of the most venerated Roman martyrs of the early Church and is a patron of Rome. He is mentioned in the canon of the Mass (Eucharistic Prayer I).

The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke and the Acts of the Apostles count Bartholomew as one of the 12 apostles, associating his name Philip. John’s Gospel links the name Nathaniel with Philip and never mentions Bartholomew. Apart from that, we know little about him.

Some scholars identify the apostle Bartholomew with Nathaniel, a solution supported by the fact that Bartholomew could be a surname (‘bar Tolomai’, son of Tolomai) and Nathaniel a given name: Nathaniel Bartholomew. If so, then Nathaniel was the man in whom the Lord saw ‘no guile’ and one who was among the apostles when the risen Lord appeared by the Sea of Galilee.

What is certain is that Bartholomew left everything to follow Jesus, becoming his disciple, friend and an apostle entrusted with the continuation of his mission.
