St. John the Apostle (1st century)
John was the younger brother of the Apostle St. James the Greater. A disciple of St. John the Baptist, when he was called by Christ he became His "beloved disciple." He was the only Apostle to remain faithful to the Master during His Passion. To him Christ entrusted the care of the Blessed Virgin Mary. He, along with St. Peter, was prominent in organizing the early Church. He wrote the fourth Gospel, three Epistles, and the Book of Revelation.
