Holy and All-Praised Apostle Andrew the First-Called(November 30)

Acquainted with the voice of the Forerunner, when the all-holy Word became flesh, granting us life and salvation, bringing the good tidings to those on earth, then, O all-wise, you followed Him and dedicated yourself as firstling and all-holy first fruits to Him; our God, whom you both came to know and revealed to your own brother; implore Him to save and enlighten our souls.

Together with Philip, Andrew was a follower of John the Baptist. When John declared Jesus to be the "Lamb of God", Andrew and Philip became followers of Jesus. Andrew shared his conviction that Jesus was the Messiah with his brother Simon Peter, and Philip told his friend Nathaniel the same thing. Each encountered Jesus and became His disciples too.

In another of the hymns at Vespers for the feast, the Apostle Andrew exhorts us to 'come and see': We have found Him whom the prophets proclaimed in the Spirit! Come to His beauty, that we may be rescued in soul and in thought, and that, led by the light of His radiance, we may drive away the night of deception and the darkness of unbelief, blessing Christ, who bestows upon the world great mercy.

During this Nativity Fast, we are urged to be like the Apostle - to encounter Christ and to rejoice in Him, and to share this joy with others: As he once called to his brother, he now cries out to us: ?Come, for we have found the One whom the world desires!" (Kontakion).

~ Fr. Andrew
