Saint Andrew

Andrew was a Galilean fisherman. He first met Jesus when John the Baptist, of whom he was a disciple, point to Jesus and said “Behold the Lamb of God!”. Andrew then followed, asking Jesus if he could know where he lived and who he was and Jesus answered him: “Come and see.” From then on, Andrew chose to follow Jesus and brought his own brother Simon Peter to him.
