Saint Andrew

ALMIGHTY God, who didst give such grace unto thy holy Apostle Saint Andrew, that he readily obeyed the calling of thy Son Jesus Christ, and followed him without delay; Grant unto us all, that we, being called by thy holy Word, may forthwith give up ourselves obediently to fulfil the holy commandments; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Sometimes only the old fashioned wording will do for a collect. I am glad we have a patron saint. Makes me feel watched over somehow. Today is his day.

    Amen and again amen.Thankyou for your collect for St Andrew’s day, most welcome as I sit by my own ‘waters of Babylon’. We will celebrate the day primarily as a social event (Jocks ot noted for spiritual enthusiasm), but I will say something about your Blog!

    Blessings on you and yours.
