Feast of Saint Andrew The Apostle
Fishers of Men

Today’s Readings: “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
At once they left their nets and followed him. (Matthew 4)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, today is the Feast of Saint Andrew, the Apostle that told his brother Saint Peter that he had found the Messiah. We do not hear a lot about Andrew as compared to his brother Peter but it was likely that it was his quiet witness that prepared his brother to pick up and follow You when You called. Today Lord, You are asking us to pray and sacrifice and to witness discipleship with our lives. You call everyone but it seems few come. But then how can they come if they have not heard? (Romans 10). Let us pray for our priests and for vocations so that many more will come because of our prayers and lives of penance. Saint Andrew, pray for us!
