Daily Martyrology for October 28

In the first century, the Apostles Simon and Jude. Simon is referred to as “the Zealot” in the Gospel of Luke, which means he may have belonged to a radical anti-Roman group. Jude is referred to as the “son of James” in the Gospel of Luke, and in the Gospel of John he speaks with Jesus at the Last Supper. Jude is widely revered as the patron of hopeless causes.
