Feast of St. Andrew

UPDATE: This is a recycled post from last year. St. Andrew pray for us!
Saint Andrew, born at Bethsaida, was a disciple of John the Baptist before he became a follower of Christ, to whom he also brought his brother Peter. With Philip he presented the Gentiles to Christ and, before the miracle in the desert, he pointed out to Christ the boy carrying the loaves and fishes. After Pentecost he preached the Gospel in many lands and was put to death by Crucifixion at Achaia.

Andrew, first-called of the Apostles and brother pf Peter their leader, intercede with the Master of All that He may grant peace to the world and great mercy to our souls.
