Memorial, St Andrew the Apostle

ROMANS 10:9-18
Brothers and sisters: If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will
be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one
confesses with the mouth and so is saved. The Scripture says, No one
who believes in him will be put to shame. There is no distinction
between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all, enriching all who
call upon him. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be
saved. But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And
how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can
they hear without someone to preach? And how can people preach unless
they are sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those
who bring the good news! But not everyone has heeded the good news; for
Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed what was heard from us? Thus faith
comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of
Christ. But I ask, did they not hear? Certainly they did; for Their
voice has gone forth to all the earth, and their words to the ends of
the world.

MATTHEW 4:18-22
As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon
who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the
sea; they were fishermen. He said to them, "Come after me, and I will
make you fishers of men." At once they left their nets and followed
him. He walked along from there and saw two other brothers, James, the
son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They were in a boat, with their
father Zebedee, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately
they left their boat and their father and followed him.

Andrew was called to a specialized vocation within the Church, which
Christ was to establish. A presupposition of Andrew's call, however,
was the more generic but more basic call to the "Way" of life
established by Christ, to which all Christians are called. It's
important to realize this. There's nothing special about a call to
the priesthood or religious life. It's not a call to a position of
greater honor or privilege. It's not a call to a life of deeper
intimacy or friendship with Christ. It's special only in the sense
that fewer people are called to this way of life. Unfortunately, the
tendency within the Church has been to set priests and religious apart,
to put them on pedestals, all of which Christ warned against in the

The important thing in life, after all, is not to be a priest or
religious or a married person or a single person. The important thing
for us is to fully live each day the life which God has individually
called us to.
