The Feasts of The Apostles are spread throughout The Liturgical Cycle, as if to show that The Apostles are The Foundation on which the whole Church rests.

Saint Bartholomew is the sixth in the List of twelve, as given by The Evangelists.

Like the other Apostles, he learned the secrets of The Divine Law and made them known to the World, confirming them by his Martyrdom (Gospel). On this day, The Liturgy prepares us for his Feast of tomorrow (Collect).

Mass: Ego autem.
