Saint Andrew, Apostle

We humbly beseech Thy majesty, O Lord, that as blessed Andrew the Apostle was both a preacher and ruler of Thy Church, so he may unceasingly interceded for us with Thee.
Pope Benedict’s General Audience of 14 June 2006 talks about Saint Andrew, the first called.
Today we particularly remember the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (Istanbul) on their patronal feast day as well as the Christians of Scotland and the Rus peoples. Read the Pope’s message to Patriarch Bartholomew I.
