St. Andrew Comments

Andrew, like his brother Simon Peter, was a fisherman. He became a disciple of the great St. John the Baptist, but when John pointed to Jesus and said, "Behold the Lamb of God!" Andrew understood that Jesus was greater. At once he left John to follow the Divine Master. Jesus knew that Andrew was walking behind him, and turning back, he asked, "what do you seek?" When Andrew answered that he would like to know where Jesus lived, Our Lord ... Continue Reading

    Many people asked for Messiah when St. Andrew were in the flesh. Therefore, he followed Jesus Crist. Jesus healed many sufferers so that St. Andrew might well consider him as Messiah. Many European are longing for St. Andrew to this day. This fact is new one for me becuase I am Japanese, far east nation. Cathlic Online, thanks. I acknowledge for big news to me. God bless you!

    Saint Andrew, my namesake, kindly in your mercy and through your intercession ask the lord Jesus to hear my prayer that the Lord brings love, caring, faithfulness, and prayerfulness in my family and further that Zimbabwe conducts free and fair elections after concluding the constitutional- making process. May Zimbabwe be blessed with a leader who loves and respect his people regardless of political affiliation and believes in God our Father

    St. Andrew, Apostle and martyr, brother of Peter, I'm delighted that today is your feast day. Through God's calling you followed Jesus and was inspired to love Him immediately. You are truIy blessed. How foolish are those who receive scantifying grace in Baptism and lose Him in life!
    I too remember my trips to the Amalfi Coast in South western Italy, going up the stairs and praying at the great altar of the church dedicated to your name. I was clearly impressed that there were many foreign, negative and rival influences on the Catholic church of this region, that had to fight wars to ward off invasion. St. Andrew as you did then, please pray for the pilgrim church on earth, for divine protection.
    Refresh me when I'm tired, give me patience when provoked. Bless my students to produce exciting and engaging written work and debate, Grant me ingenuity in performing their tasks. Thank you dear Jesus, for the success of my yearbook publication. I dedicate this year's work to you. Mother Mary pray for all bedridden, vulnerable persons, the sick and the suffering to have the care that they need. Bless care-givers too. May they be dedicated to the ones they care for. Amen.

    I visited Almalfi Italy this past summer and prayed at the crypt of St.Andrew.Once a year these Holy Relics (bones) are displayed and the miracle is a liquid known as the manna of St.Andrew that is collected from these relics and displayed.
