Feast of St. Andrew, Protokletos

Almighty God, who gave such grace to your apostle Andrew that he readily obeyed the call of your Son Jesus Christ, and
brought his brother with him: Give us, who are called by your holy Word, grace to follow him without delay, and to bring those near to us into his gracious presence; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

All praise, O Lord, for Andrew,
The first to follow you;
He witnessed to his brother,
“This is Messiah true.”
You called him from his fishing
Upon Lake Galilee;
He rose to meet your challenge,
“Leave all and follow me.”

Patron Saint of three countries

Patron of three countries, maybe.
But he was actually born in Scotland. In fact he was named after the town in which he was born.

I See You!
