Saint Lazarus of Bethany

December 17th

We know Lazarus through the Gospel. He lives in Bethany with her sisters Martha and Mary and they are friends of Jesus. The first and foremost source of information we have of Lazarus is the Gospel. Dying after a short illness, Jesus resurrects him to the amazement of family and gravediggers. This historic Lazarus is an example that many would like to aspire to. With Jesus among his friends, hosting him at his home on at least three occasions, Jesus cares for him and wants him to the point of reviving him.
