Pray the Scripture for today. Click HERE, then scroll down and click on today’s date for a video reflection. Hold the Gospel in your heart with lectio divina.

Prepare a fish dish today in honor of this fisherman, the First-Called Apostle of Christ.  If on a tight budget, catch a squirrel and make Brunswick Stew! This is a great day to sing Two Fishermen. Another hymn for the day is the favorite of Saint John Paul II, Pescador de Hombres / Lord, When You Came to the Seashore.

St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, Russia, and Romania.  The flag of Scotland commemorates his X-shaped cross. See more.

In Poland, the evening of the 29th is Andrzejki, a time of song and dance and playing of games that predict the future marriage mates of young people. Every town and village has its Bal Andrzejkowy or Saint Andrew’s Ball. They have them in Chicago, too!

In 2016, Scots invited people named Andrew from major European cities to celebrate the big day in Scotland! Why is it such a big deal for the Scots? Join in the fun with the RED HOT CHILI PIPERS!
