  • Reading I: Romans 10:9-18
  • Resp. Psalm:  Psalm 19:8.9.10.11
  • Gospel Reading: Matthew 4:18-22

This year, the feast of St. Andrew falls on Monday of the first week of Advent.  The Gospel reading recalls to us his call as a disciple (Matthew 4:18).  Later, he and his brother Simon will be numbered among the Twelve whom the Lord will choose from among the disciples (Matthew 10:2).  In the Gospel of John, the call of Andrew will be presented differently.  There, Andrew is said to have been one of those who came from those baptized by John the Baptist and followed Jesus after listening to John refer to him as “the Lamb of God”.  Andrew in turn will be calling Simon to the group of Jesus.  John’s emphasis here of course is that a disciple need not be called by Jesus directly; the call can come through those who come and have seen where the Lord dwells.

The reading from the Letter to the Romans focuses on the proclamation of the apostles.  One comes to confess the Lord because one has believed; one has believed because one has heard; one has heard because of those who preach.  One preaches the gospel because he has been sent.  Andrew was one of those who have been sent and who have preached the gospel which is the Word of God.

About St. Andrew the Apostle

Romans 10:9-18
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg Greek
9For if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thy heart that God hath raised him up from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10For, with the heart, we believe unto justice; but, with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.
11For the scripture saith: Whosoever believeth in him, shall not be confounded.
12For there is no distinction of the Jew and the Greek: for the same is Lord over all, rich unto all that call upon him.
13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.
14How then shall they call on him, in whom they have not believed? Or how shall they believe him, of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear, without a preacher?
15And how shall they preach unless they be sent, as it is written: How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, of them that bring glad tidings of good things!
16But all do not obey the gospel. For Isaias saith: Lord, who hath believed our report?
17Faith then cometh by hearing; and hearing by the word of Christ.
18But I say: Have they not heard? Yes, verily, their sound hath gone forth into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the whole world.
Psalm 19:8

20And they immediately leaving their nets, followed him.
