St. Andrew, the Apostle

Feast Day: November 30

Novena: Day 9

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 humility, that we may be as humble as he was when he thought himself unworthy to die in the same manner as Christ.

St. Andrew, you worked with great bravery for the sake of the Gospel throughout your life, even continuing on courageously to the point of death. But like your brother St. Peter, you did not feel worthy to die in the same manner as Jesus did.

When you were sentenced to death by crucifixion, you requested your cross to be different from Our Lord’s, feeling that your death as a sinful man should not look outwardly identical to the death of Jesus.

Pray for me, that I may have a true, humble understanding of my own sinfulness. 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
