== Life ==
St. '''Simon''' was born in Cana of Galilee and was one of the [[Apostles|Twelve Great Apostles]]. He was the groom at the wedding feast where [[Christ]] changed the water into wine ([[Gospel of John|Jn.]] 2:1-11). Because of that [[miracle]], St. Simon left his home, parents and bride to follow Christ. After [[Pentecost]], he preached the [[Gospel]] in Mauritania in Africa.
