Saint Simon the Apostle

A small statue of St. Simon the Apostle (not Simon Peter) in St. Michael's Cathedral.

St. Simon practiced law before receiving his call. He is thus sometimes pictured holding a book or scroll, as here. More distinctively, he rests his hand on the implement associated with his gruesome martyrdom – a saw.

St. Simon, pray that I’ll have a fraction of your zeal.
