O Glorious Saint Andrew,
You were the first to recognize and follow the ‘Lamb of God’.
With your friend St John, (John the Baptist), You remained with Jesus for that first day, for your entire life, and now throughout eternity.
As you led your brother Saint Peter to Christ and many others after him, draw us also to Christ too.
Teach us to lead others to Jesus, solely out of love for HIM and dedication in HIS service.
Help us to learn the lesson of the Cross and to carry our daily crosses without complaint, so that they may carry us to JESUS.
St. Andrew, also known as Andrew the Apostle, was a Christian Apostle and the older brother to St. Peter.
According to the New Testament, Andrew was born in the village of Bethsaida on the Sea of Galilee during the early first century. Much like his younger brother, Simon Peter, Andrew was also a fisherman. Andrew’s very name means strong and he was known for having good social skills.
