St. Andrew, Apostle and Martyr

Statue of St. Andrew in the Vatican

Saint Andrew is sometimes called the "first called" apostle, since it was he who introduced  his brother Simon to Jesus (in John's gospel).

Andrew's generosity and immediacy in responding to Christ's call can be a model for our discipleship. So often we ruminate on things and call it discerning God's will, when what we need is a little more of Andrew's complete commitment in following Jesus at the very first call.
