Saint Bartholomew, one of the twelve Apostles, was introduced by St. Philip to Jesus, who said “Behold, an Israelite in whom there is no guile.” (John1:43-51) His name means “son of Tolomai” and he preached the Gospel in India, Mesopotamia, and Armenia. St. Bartholomew was martyred by being flayed and beheaded. His relics are in Rome, Sicily, and Benevento, Italy, Frankfurt, Germany and Canterbury, England.
