    St. John the Apostle

    Called by Jesus during the first year of His ministry, and traveled everywhere with Him, becoming so close as to be known as the beloved disciple. Took part in the Last Supper. The only one of the Twelve not to forsake our Saviour in the hour of His Passion. Made guardian of Our Lady by Jesus

    Here's a Link to a biography on Saint John the Apostle.
