Always wanted to be an Apostle

Today is the Feast Day of St. Andrew the Apostle of Jesus Christ. Although he was among the first persons whom Jesus called to be apostles, and although he was formerly in the fishing business with three other of Jesus' apostles, Andrew's main claim to fame is that he was "St. Peter's brother." From what we know of St. Peter, that in itself would have been a full-time job.

Almighty God, who gave such grace to your apostle Andrew that he readily obeyed the call of your Son Jesus Christ, and brought his brother with him: Give us, who are called by your Holy Word, grace to follow him without delay, and to bring those near to us into his gracious presence; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

In peace,

The Rev. Linda McCloud
