"The first called" - St. Andrew was the first to respond to the call of Jesus Christ to the apostolate.
The feast of St. Andrew the Apostle is present in both the Orthodox and Roman Catholic calendars.
In our country, Saint Andrew enjoys a special honor, because he is considered the protector of the Romanians. He was the one who preached the gospel in these lands.
The most common custom of St. Andrew is to put wheat in a pot, with a little water or earth, to predict how prosperous and abundant the following year will be.
Happy birthday to those who bear this name, with accomplishments and beautiful moments in the future!
