Feast of Saint Andrew, Apostle

Saint of the day

Saint Andrew (1st century)

Matthew tells us that Andrew was a fisherman, along with his brother Peter. In the Gospel of John, we learn that Andrew was also a disciple of John the Baptist (see 1:40). With John the Baptist, Andrew was waiting for the arrival of the Messiah. And now here was Jesus, inviting Andrew to follow him. Andrew’s hope had come true.

What are your hopes and dreams? What would you hope to accomplish in your life? Will you join Saint Andrew in following Jesus Christ in fulfillment of your life’s dream? (Taken from “Take Ten: Daily Bible Reflections for Teens.”)


Saint Andrew, help me to be as clear and certain in hearing the call of Christ in my life as you were when Jesus called you. (Taken from “Take Ten: Daily Bible Reflections for Teens.”)
