St. John the Evangelist, the brother of St. James the Great, was a fisherman. Jesus called John to follow him, and John became “the beloved disciple.” He was at the Last Supper and stood at the foot of the cross during Jesus’ passion. He wrote the fourth Gospel, three Epistles and possibly the Book of Revelation. He died circa 101. St. John the Evangelist is patron saint of authors, booksellers, editors, printers, writers and theologians.
