St. Andrew, the Apostle
Feast Day: November 30
Novena: Day 7
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 courage in preaching the Gospel, that we may always be firm in our faith, no matter what it may cost us.
St. Andrew, you readily accepted the mission from Jesus to become a “fisher of men,” and you carried out that mission until the end of your life.
After Christ’s death, resurrection, and ascension, Christians were often persecuted and killed. But despite this, you carried on courageously in your mission to preach the Gospel. You continued trying to win souls for Christ until your martyrdom, and you did not let the threat of suffering or death stop you./p>
Pray for me, that I may have the courage to preach the Gospel against all obstacles as you did. 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.
