Quote/s of the Day – 30 November – The Feast of St Andrew, Apostle of Christ, Martyr on the Cross for Christ
“He found first, his brother Simon
and said to him:
We have found the Messias.”
This is what the Apostle is claimed to have said, on the occasion of St Andrew’s Martyrdom, according to an ancient account (which dates to the beginning of the sixth century), entitled –
The Passion of Andrew:
“Hail, O Cross, inaugurated by the Body of Christ
and adorned with His limbs
as though they were precious pearls.
Before the Lord mounted you,
you inspired an earthly fear.
Now, instead, endowed with heavenly love,
you are accepted as a gift.
Believers know of the great joy that you possess
and of the multitude of gifts you have prepared.
I come to you, therefore,
confident and joyful,
so that you too may receive me,
exultant as a disciple of the One
Who was hung upon you….
O blessed Cross, clothed in the majesty
and beauty of the Lord’s limbs!…
Take me, carry me far from men
and restore me to my Teacher,
so that, through you,
the One who redeemed me by you,
may receive me.
Hail, O Cross, yes, hail indeed!”
