Though Saint Barnabas was not one of the original Twelve Apostles, he was intimately involved in their lives and ministry. A Jewish convert to Christianity, Barnabas is known for fostering Saint Paul’s journey of faith and for preaching with Paul on widespread mission trips, most notably to Antioch. Along with Paul, Barnabas served as a minister to the gentiles and pioneered the idea that early members of the Church did not have to be of Jewish heritage in order to follow Christ. He is often referred to as “the peacemaker.” After years of evangelization, Barnabas was eventually captured and executed by stoning. Pray to Saint Barnabas for protection against hail storms.
