Commentary: Wayback Machine. Quoth the Holy Redeemer bulletin:
As in the case of the other apostles, we see in James & Philip human men who became foundation stones of the Church, & we are reminded again that holiness & its consequent apostolate are entirely the gift of God, not a matter of human achieving. The feast day of Philip, along with that of James… was traditionally observed on 1 May, the anniversary of the dedication of the church dedicated to them in Rome (now called the Church of the Twelve Apostles). (Wikipedia-link Santi Apostoli)'Tis also the feast of Saint Alexander I, Pope (died circa 115), sixth Bishop of Rome: Saint-link & Wikipedia-link.
