—Pause for an “Examination of Conscience”—

Kyrie Eleison… Christe Eleison… Kyrie Eleison…

Home Sanctuary: Is the Apostles' Creed even relevant anymore?The Apostles Creed

I BELIEVE in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty: from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Conscientious Catholic: St. Andrew, Apostle/MartyrDaily Prayer to St. Andrew

O Glorious St. Andrew, you were the first to recognize and follow the Lamb of God. With your friend St. John you remained with Jesus for that first day, for your entire life, and now throughout eternity. As you led your brother, St. Peter, to Christ, and many others after him, draw us also to Him. Teach us to lead others to Christ solely out of love for Him, and dedication in His service. Help us to learn the lesson of the Cross and to carry our daily crosses without complaint so that they may carry us to Jesus. Amen.

Short Meditation
(Life of Saint Andrew)

Feast of St Andrew, Apostle of Christ, Martyr – 30 November – AnaStpaul

(Testimony from Tradition – crucifixion, and death)

Day 5

Andrew, addressing the people again, begged them not to deprive him of what he looked upon as inestimable happiness. When he was led to the place of execution, and saw the (X-shaped) The Martyrdom of Saint Andrew Painting by Gregorio de Ferraricross on which he was to die, he cried out joyfully: “O precious cross, which I have so long desired, so truly loved, so ceaselessly sought; at last I find thee prepared to receive me. Take me away from the world, and unite me again with my Lord, that He who has redeemed me on thee, may again receive me by thee.” Thus cried the Saint from afar; but when he reached the cross, he embraced and kissed it, and gave himself willingly to the executioners, who bound him to it. No sooner had the cross been raised, than it served as a pulpit to the holy Apostle, and he exhorted the Christians to remain firm in their holy faith, and the heathens to convert themselves to the only true God. He explained the nothingness of the idols and the truth of the Christian religion. For two days he lived and preached, hanging on the cross. The people began again to murmur against the governor, and desired to have the Saint taken down from the cross; but the holy martyr desired to be permitted to die upon it, as he esteemed death a priceless grace. On the third day, when the people seemed determined to rescue him by force, he called to his Saviour: “Do not permit, O Lord, that Thy servant, who, according to his own wish, hangs on the cross, be taken down from it; but do Thou take me from it to Thee, O my beloved Master, Jesus Christ, whom I have confessed and always loved, and whom, still confessing, I long to see. Take, O Lord The Martyrdom of Saint Andrew - The Collection - Museo Nacional del PradoJesus, my spirit to Thee. I ardently desire to be united with Thee.” During this prayer, a bright light streamed from heaven and rested upon the Saint, whilst he breathed his last. The martyrdom of St. Andrew happened in the year of Our Lord AD 62, or, according to others, in AD 70. His holy body was transported to Constantinople in the time of Constantine the Great; but was afterward brought to Rome, where it has its resting place in the Church of St. Peter.

Pause and reflect for a moment…

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Saint November 30 : St. Andrew Apostle the Patron of Fishermen, Singers, Scotland, RussiaDAY 5 PRAYER

Blest Saint Andrew, the Lord`s herald, meek Apostle, bold Martyr, who by your deeds confirmed your words, and sealed the truth with your blood on the cross. Pray for us as we journey through the vicissitudes of life; amidst its cross – trials, tribulations, sufferings, and challenges. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ always keep us firm and enable us to bear witnesses to the Gospel without wavering. As we journey through this novena, pray for our intentions, the intentions of the members of “Our Catholic Community Forum,” and all those in need of hope at this time. (Ask St. Andrew to pray for your intentions…Mention them…) Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

CONCLUDING PRAYER

O CHRIST, our Lord, Who didst beautify the most blessed Andrew with the grace of apostleship, and the crown of martyrdom, by granting to him this special gift, that by preaching the mystery of the cross, he should merit death on the cross; grant us to become most true lovers of Thy holy
cross, and, denying ourselves, to take up our cross and follow Thee; that by sharing Thy sufferings in this life, we may deserve the happiness of obtaining life everlasting. Amen.
