St. Andrew The Apostle - November 30

Saint Andrew The Apostle
November 30 

According to the Gospel of John, Andrew was first drawn to Our Lord when John the Baptist pointed to Jesus and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God.” (John 1:35-36) Andrew’s initial thought was that of evangelization.  He went to his brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah.” (John 1:41)  And the two of them became fishers of men. (Matthew 4:18-20, Mark 1:16-18)

We too are called to be fishers of men. But it is finding the right balance in such evangelization that is difficult. Excitement over the goodness of God can be quite overpowering.
Holy Spirit guide us
and help us to show our zeal
without words when necessary.  Amen
Saint Andrew Pray for Us
