St. Philip the Deacon

St. Philip the DeaconFeast Day – June 6

St. Philip was one of the original deacons, selected by the apostles to minister to the needs of the people as they taught people about Jesus.

Philip too preached the word of God – far and wide, and stories are told of his conversion of the eunuch from Ethiopia.  His selfless service to God gave great glory to our Lord and converted many people to the Church.

This week at VBS, I feel akin to St. Phillip the Deacon, as I try to feed the tummies of all the kids at VBS and still teach them the word of God too!  Busy but happily serving the Lord’s will.
