ST. JOHN, OUR LOVING PATRON
St. John, the son of Zebedee and the brother of St. James the great, was
called to be an Apostle by Our Lord in the first year of His public
ministry. He lived in the first century AD. He was one of the Twelve
disciples of Jesus and also called lovingly as ‘the beloved disciple’.
St. John is called the ‘Apostle of Charity,’ a virtue he had learnt from his
Master Jesus, which was constantly inculcated by word and example. He
inspires by his life that each Johnian should be a flame of love and a
glove of wisdom. He also invites each Johnian to be intellectually
competent, professionally skilled, spiritually evolved, morally upright,
socially responsive and culturally integrated in the world.
