SAINT
ANDREW
          November 30                                                                                  Patron of :
                                                                                                                 Fishermen
ONE day John the Baptist and two of his disciples, one of them Andrew, saw Jesus walk by. John said, "Behold the Lamb of God!" And the two disciples followed Jesus.
They asked, "Where do You live, Master?" and Jesus said, "Come and see."
They stayed with Jesus that day. Later Andrew told his brother Peter, "We have found the Messiah." And he led him to Jesus.
One day Jesus said to Peter and Andrew, "Go to the deep water and let down your nets."
"Master," said Peter, "we have been fishing all night, but have caught nothing."
But they let down their net. The net caught so many fish that Peter and Andrew could not pull it up. They had to call for help.
Jesus said, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." And at once they gave up their work and followed Jesus.
Andrew preached the Gospel in Greece, and even in Russia and Poland. He was put to death on a cross, made in the form of an X.
Prayer
O Lord, You raised up St. Andrew, Your Apostle to preach and rule in Your Church. Grant that we may always experience the benefit of his intercession with You.
