Mnemonic: The 12 Apostles

I have always had difficulty in memorizing the names of the 12 Apostles; my Dad whips them out at a moment's notice 50 years later.

I guess I should have had that Baltimore Catechism training instead of the California Catholic school one.

Here's a mnemonic: h/t James Hahn Real Life Rosary Weblog

Mark 3:13-19

I found this little device to help memorize the 12 Apostles in the Ignatius Faith & Life 2nd Grade Teacher's Manual.

Peter, Philip
Thomas, Thaddeus
John, James, James, Judas
Matthew (Matthias)

I learned it as "5 J's, 2 P's, and STAB'M". The two mnemonics work pretty well together, too.
