St. Andrew

Today the Church celebrates the feast of St. Andrew! Happy feast day to all you Andrews out there.

~St. Andrew was a native of Bethsaida in Galilee, a fisherman by trade, and a former disciple of John the Baptist.
~Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, Russia, and Romania. The flag of Scotland (and the Union Flag and the arms and Flag of Nova Scotia) feature a saltire (X-shaped cross) in commemoration of the shape of St. Andrew's cross.

Tonight would be a good night for a yummy fish meal, as he was a fisherman. (And of course something sweet as a treat for the children in celebrating this feast!)
Happy Feast Day!
