Saint Zechariah the Prophet ~ A Comrade of Saint Haggai


Zechariah the Prophet by Michelangelo


Saint Zechariah the Prophet, along with Saint Haggai, ( the 10th and 11th of the minor prophets) both worked hard to encourage the Jewish people to rebuild the Temple of Jerusalem after returning from their long exile in Babylonia.  Zechariah, very curiously, gave his encouragement through some extraordinary visions:
The Four Horsemen (1:7-17)
Four Horns and Four Blacksmiths (2:1-4)
The Lampstand (4:1-14)
The Flying Scroll (5:1-4)
The Flying Bushel (5:5-11)
Four Chariots (6:1-8)

St. Zechariah shares a Feast Day with St. Onesiphorus – September 6.
St. Haggai's Feast Day is December 16.
