St. Andrew, the Apostle

Feast Day: November 30

Novena: Day 1

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear Lord, we thank You for giving us St. Andrew the Apostle as an example of holiness. Help us to imitate his openness to Your call in our own lives, that we may be as ready to serve You as he was.

St. Andrew, you were one of the first people to be called personally by Our Lord. He called you and your brother St. Peter to leave behind your lives as fishermen and to follow Him as Apostles. You followed His call to become “fishers of men.” And you remained faithful to that call, staying with Him throughout His ministry and spreading the Gospel after His death.

You probably never would have guessed that you would be invited to be one of the closest friends of the Son of God, but you left everything behind in order to follow Him.

Pray for me, that I may be as ready to serve Christ as you were. Please also pray for...

(add your own intentions).

St. Andrew the Apostle, pray for us!

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.1
