The holy, glorious and all-laudable Apostle Simon the Zealot was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ, referenced in Matthew 10:2-4 and other places in Holy Scripture. His feast day is May 10.

Life

Simon was born in Cana of Galilee and was one of the Twelve Great Apostles. He was the groom at the wedding feast where Christ changed the water into wine (John 2:1-11). Because of that miracle, St. Simon left his home, parents and bride to follow Christ. After Pentecost, he preached the Gospel in Mauritania in Africa.

He ended his missionary work in Georgia. St. Simon was tortured and crucified by the pagans in Abkhazia.
