Biblical Character
    (circa 1-circa 60)
    Born in Bethsaida, Galilee
    St. Peter's younger brother
    Crucified in Patrae (Greece) by the Romans
    Often depicted as an old man with an X-shaped cross or saltire
    Patron saint of Scotland, fishermen and singers
    Feast day is November 30
    He abandoned his life as a fisherman to follow Christ without a second thought.
    His fame is eclipsed by Peter’s, who was chosen to found the church.
    He expressed doubt that Jesus could feed a multitude with just a few fish and loaves of bread.
    He is often portrayed with long, messy white hair.
    The X-shaped cross is popular with sadomasochists.
    He traveled throughout much of the Roman Empire spreading the gospel.
    He allegedly asked for an X-shaped cross because he didn’t feel worthy to die the same way Christ did.
    He was tied rather than nailed to his cross so he would live and suffer longer.
    His relics were returned to Greece by the Vatican as a goodwill gesture towards the Greek Orthodox Church (1964).
    His X-shaped cross is part of the Union Jack.
