St. Bart

August 24, 2013:  St. Bartholomew, Apostle

Rv 21:9b-14  To show me wife of Lamb, angel took me to mountain, showed me Jerusalem, gleaming with God's splendor, jasper-radiant, crystal-clear, with massive wall, 12 angel-manned tribe-inscribed gates, with 12 Apostle-inscribed courses of stones.

Ps 145:10-11, 12-13, 17-18  Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.

Jn 1:45-51  Nathanael [Bartholomew], “true child of Israel, duplicity-free." “How do you know?” “I saw you under fig tree.” “You're Son of God, King of Israel.” "You'll see greater things: heaven opened, angels ascending/descending.”
