St. John the Apostle

Saint John the Apostle, also known as John the Evangelist, is venerated as a saint in the Catholic Church. He was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus and is traditionally considered the author of several books of the New Testament, including the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John, and the Book of Revelation. John is known for his close relationship with Jesus, often referred to as the "beloved disciple." He was present at important moments in Jesus' life, such as the Last Supper and the crucifixion, and was entrusted with caring for Mary, the mother of Jesus, after Jesus' death. John is revered as a saint for his faithfulness, his writings, and his role in spreading the Christian message.
