The Great Cloud of Witnesses

St. Gamaliel
Fr. Lawrence Jagdfeld, O.F.M.

St. Gamaliel

August 3

Gamaliel was the rabbinical teacher and mentor of St. Paul. Gamaliel counseled the Jewish Sanhedrin in Jerusalem to release St. Peter and the other Apostles, making the striking and important suggestion that “a tree is known by its fruits.” According to tradition, he reportedly became a Christian, perhaps under the influence of St. Paul. The discovery of his body in Jerusalem was celebrated on August 3 by early Christians and is still his feast.
