Almighty God, who didst give such grace to thine apostle Andrew that he readily obeyed the call of thy Son Jesus Christ, and brought his brother with him: Give unto us, who are called by thy Word, grace to follow him without delay, and to bring those near to us into his gracious presence; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Today is the Feast Day of Andrew the Apostle. This beautifully illuminated initial shows Andrew's martyrdom on the saltire cross, also known as the Saint Andrew's Cross. It is found in an early-15th century Breviary owned by Archbishop Chicheley (d.1443). [MS 69] #StAndrewsDay pic.twitter.com/ivO6w6Jqbf
