St Andrew the First Called Apostle of Christ


St Andrew the First-Called was the first Apostle to follow our Lord Jesus Christ. His
brother, St (Simon) Peter, also followed His Calling soon afterwards. (JOHN 1:3542).
Having been born and grown up in Bethsaida, they must have been acquainted
with several of the other Disciples and even our Lord Jesus Christ Who had all
grown up in the same region many of whom were related.
Since his early youth St Andrew had Loved God with all his heart and soul. He and
his brother had been fishermen for as long as he could remember, and
although St Peter married and had children, St Andrew remained celibate his
entire life, preferring to dedicate himself body and soul to God.
When St John the Baptist and Forerunner to our Lord Jesus, began to preach, St
Andrew became his closest Disciple and he later sent him, together with St
John (the Beloved Disciple and Theologian) to Christ having identified Him
as the Lamb of God the True Messiah.
After the Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles at Pentecost, St Andrew went
to the Eastern lands preaching the Word of God. He travelled through Asia
Minor, Thrace, Macedonia, and reaching the River Danube, he went along
the coast of the Black Sea, through Crimea, the Black Sea region and along
the River Dniepr, ascending to the place where the city of Kiev now stands.
He stopped overnight on the hills of Kiev, and upon rising in the morning, he said
to those Disciples who accompanied him: See these hills? Upon them shall
shine forth the Beneficence of God, and there will be a great city here, and
God shall raise up many churches.
St Andrew then went up around the hills, Blessed them all and set up a Cross on
each hill. Having completed his Prayers, he went up even further along the
Dniepr and reached a settlement of the Slavs, where Novgorod was built.
From there St Andrew journeyed through the land of the Varangians towards
Rome, teaching the people Christs Divine Truth, Baptising and Healing
countless multitudes in the Name of our Triune God.
Eventually, they returned to Thrace, where in the small village of Byzantium, (the
site of the future great city of Constantinople), he founded the Church of Christ.
So it was that St Andrew linked the Mother Church of Constantinople, with Her
Daughter Church of Russia.
On his Missionary Journeys St Andrew and his companion Disciples endured
many sufferings and torments from the pagans who cast them out of their
cities and beat them. In Sinope they were pelted with stones and rocks, but, by
the Grace of God, they remained unharmed, and they continued to ...make
Disciples of all Nations, to Baptise them in the Name of God the Father, the Son
and the Holy Spirit, and to teach them everything.. that our Lord Jesus Christ
had taught His Faithful Disciples and Apostles, thereby fulfilling their Sacred
Commission as Commanded by our Saviour.
Through the Intercessory Prayers of St Andrew, and his Faithful Companions, our
Lord Jesus Christ worked many Divine Miracles.
Through the concerted
Labours and Struggles of St Andrew and his Disciples, many Holy Churches of
Christ were established, for which he chose Bishops and Clergy to teach, to
guide, to encourage and to take care of the Spiritual Welfare of Gods Holy
Flocks.
At Patra, St Andrew suffered his final Martyrdom.
Our Compassionate Lord Jesus Christ had worked many Divine Miracles through
the Intercessory Prayers and Acts of Love of St Andrew in that great city the

John speak, and had followed Him.

infirm and ailing were Healed and the blind received their sight. Among
those who were completely cured of various afflictions and physical
disabilities were an illustrious citizen named Sosios and the wife of the
Governor of Patra, Maximilla,as well as his brother, Stratokles.
All these Divine Miracles, together with St Andrews Inspired Preaching and
Teaching of Christs Divine Truth profoundly affected and Enlightened almost
all the citizens of Patra.
A few stubborn and determined pagans remained, however, among whom was
the Prefect of Patra, Aegeatos.
With sincere Love (Agape) and Humility St Andrew appealed to his soul - striving to
make him understand and accept the Divine Mystery of Eternal Life, through
the Wonderworking Power of the Holy Cross of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus
Christ.
But it was to no avail, for the Prefect remained hard-hearted and Spiritually Blind
and Deaf. He was also enraged at the audacity of St Andrews efforts to
Enlighten him to the Reality of the only True, Living and All Powerful God - our
Creator Who grants us Eternal Life and everything that is Good and Blessed.
Prefect Aegeatos gave orders for the arrest and execution of St Andrew by means
of crucifixion, for he thought the former pagans would renounce Christ when
they witnessed the Holy Apostles humiliation and painful death on the cross.
However, St Andrew the First-Called Apostle of Christ accepted his Martyrdom with
Joy.
In order to prolong the suffering of the Saint, Prefect Aegeatos issued orders not to
nail his wrists and feet, but to tie them to the cross.
For two days St Andrew continued teaching Divine Truth to the citizens who had
gathered to witness his Martyrdom, and as they listened to him, they pitied him
and tried to remove him from the cross.
Fearing a riot, Aegeatos ordered a stay of execution, but St Andrew continued his
Prayers, beseeching our Lord to grant him to Repose on the cross, and the
soldiers were unable to loosen the ropes, no matter how hard they tried.
Finally, St Andrew, having Glorified God for His Great Mercy, loudly exclaimed:
Lord Jesus Christ, receive my spirit!
A blazing ray of Divine Light illumined the cross and the Martyr crucified upon it
and when the Light faded, St Andrew had surrendered his soul to our Lord.
Maximilla, the wife of the Prefect Aegeatos, had the body of St Andrew reverently
removed from the cross, and then buried him with all due honour.
A few centuries later, Emperor Constantine the Great, made the necessary
arrangement for the Holy Relics of St Andrew to be solemnly transferred to
Constantinople and placed in the Church of the Holy Apostles, to rest beside
the Holy Relics of St Luke the Evangelist Apostle, and St Timothy, the Faithful
Disciple of St Paul.

Finding first his own brother, Simon, he


said to him: We have found the
Messiah! (which is translated: the
Christ.)

And he took him to Jesus.


Looking at him, Jesus said:

Thou art
Simon the son of Jonah. Thou
shalt be called Cephas, (which is
translated: Rock.)

sinner, like me, from speaking the
Statutes of God; however, he again
taught usto be Faithful, and with
many tears he proclaimed: Today,
if you hear His Voice, do not become
hard-hearted,
like
Israel
once
embittered Him. Hence he added
the following Psalm: All the earth
sing to the Lord! Come! We have
found Him for Whom we have been
waiting!
