St. Andrew the Apostle

Of Bethsaida; Fisherman; disciple of the Baptizer; First called with his brother Simon Peter to follow the Lord; one of the Twelve; Martyr

“The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified. Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor." (John 12)

It is Andrew who said to Peter “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ). (John 1)
