We humbly beseech your Majesty, O Lord, that as the blessed Apostle Andrew was once a teacher and ruler of your Church, so he may ever be our advocate with you. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
O Christ, our Lord, who did glorify the most blessed Andrew with the grace of apostleship, and the crown of martyrdom, by granting to him this special gift, that by preaching the mystery of the cross, he should merit death on the cross; grant us to become most true lovers of your holy cross, and, denying ourselves, to take up your cross and follow you; that by sharing your sufferings in this life we may deserve the happiness of obtaining life everlasting. Amen.
