St. Andrew, the Apostle
Feast Day: November 30
Novena: Day 3
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 faith in our own lives, that we may follow You as unreservedly as he did.
St. Andrew, you left behind your old life as a fisherman when Our Lord called you to be His apostle. You did not know what this new life might entail, but you chose to follow Him readily in faith.
Throughout Christ’s public ministry, you remained close with Him and did not desert Him. After His death and resurrection, you carried out the mission of preaching the Gospel despite persecution. You had faith that God would reward you in Heaven.
Pray for me, that I may remain faithful to God in my life, despite fears of the unknown or of suffering. 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.
