The relics of the Saint are preserved in the Basilica of Saint Bartholomew on Tiber Island in Rome.

"Here is a true Israelite.  There is no duplicity in him."

"Speak for us to Christ, the Lord, that we, sons and daughters of immigrants, may journey through the  pilgrimage of this life and be conducted by you to the vision of God. Amen."


O Glorious Saint Bartholomew, Jesus called you a person without guile and you saw in this word a sign that he was the Son of God and King of Israel. Obtain for us the grace to be ever guileless and innocent as doves. At the same time, help us to have your gift of faith to see the Divine hand in the events of daily life. May we discern the signs of the times that lead to Jesus on earth and will eventually unite us to him forever in heaven. Amen
