Life

St. 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 (Jn. 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.

Martyrdom

After converting many to the Christian faith, St. Simon was tortured and crucified by the pagans.

Commemoration

The Church remembers St. Simon the Zealot on May 10.
