NOV 30: COMMEMORATION OF ST. ANDREW APOSTLE

2012110737standrew     Each year on November 30th we commemorate St. Andrew who was the first to accept the Lord’s call to be an apostle, and was one of the first men to follow the Lord’s precursor, St. John the Baptist. St. Andrew, after finding and being found by the Lord Jesus, ran to his brother Simon Peter and announced that he had found the Messiah. He bade Simon to “come and see” which Peter did without hesitation. Tradition has it that St. Andrew preached in various places after the Lord’s death, and was crucified in Acaia.
