Views 279


Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Nov 30, 2022, on how St. Andrew the Apostles, whose feast it is today, was a man of valor as Pope Benedict described him and is the meaning of his name in Greek, describing his mission of being sent. Father describes his life:

Andrew brought Peter to Jesus

John 6: 8 - miraculous feeding of the thousands

John 12: 20 - Andrew was mediator with the Greeks

Andrew may have encouraged John to write his Gospel

Ministered to the Greeks centered in Constantinople, who especially venerate him.

Mark 1: 17

Mark 13: 4 in Jerusalem Andrew, when will this be?

Death Crucified but different from the lord, just as Peter asked on a diagonal cross, an X

Our crosses are of value if we unite them with Christ's cross

Ask Our Lady Queen of the Apostles to live up to the name of Christians.

Ave Maria!
