St. Andrew the Apostle

St. Andrew the Apostle, a fisherman, followed St. John the Baptist until St. John pointed to Jesus and called him the Lamb of God. After that, Andrew followed Jesus and knew he was the Messiah. Andrew brought his brother Simon (who became St. Peter) to Jesus. Jesus told them they would be fishers of men. After Jesus’ resurrection, Andrew preached in Greece. He was martyred. St. Andrew is patron saint of Russia and Scotland.
