Today we celebrate the feast of Simon and Jude, two lesser known Apostles. Their importance comes from their being among those whom Jesus appointed to bring his teaching to the ages. We saw that at the Last Supper when Simon and Jude were among the twelve to whom Jesus said, "I have much more tom tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth."
In the Second Century St. Eusebius sadly witnessed the way Rome was giving way to individuals with their own gospels. In 150 A.D. Pope Pius I asked Eusebius to straighten out those people.

He brought them to see that wherever the Apostles settled, they had appointed bishops to whom they had entrusted the true Gospel of Christ.
