Today we commemorate St. Andrew the First Called. He was a fisherman by trade and the brother of The Chief apostle St. Peter. When St. John the Baptist preached the message of repentance by the Jordan River, St. Andrew responded to his call and became his disciple, and soon after became the first disciple of Christ Himself, through the teachings and directions of the Holy Forerunner.
Soon after, St. Andrew told his brother Peter of the good news–the long awaited Messiah was here. After the glorious death and resurrection of Christ, St. Andrew spread the gospel far and wide. Eventually, St. Andrew was crucified like His beloved Savior, but in the shape of an “X”.
St. Andrew, please pray for us!
