Santo André

De acordo com o Novo Testamento, o Apóstolo André, também conhecido como Santo André, era um discípulo de Jesus. He is the brother of Saint Peter and was part of the inner circle of Jesus Christ.

Na tradição ortodoxa, ele é conhecido como o primeiro a ser chamado. The Patriarch of Constantinople is the apostolic successor to Saint Andrew.

Andrew was born in the early first century in the village of Bethsaida on the Sea of Galilee, according to the New Testament. He was a fisherman. His name means “strong,” and he was well-known for his social skills.

De acordo com o Evangelho de Mateus, Jesus estava caminhando ao longo da costa do Mar da Galiléia quando notou André e Simão Pedro pescando.

Então ele pediu que eles fossem discípulos e “pescadores de homens”.

Andrew is not named in the Gospel of Luke at first. It describes Jesus using a boat, thought to be solely Simon’s, to preach to the multitudes and catch a large amount of fish on a previously dry night. Later, in Luke 5:7, it is mentioned that Simon was not the only pescador no barco, but it is not mentioned until Luke 6:14 that Andrew is Simon Peter’s brother.

Birth/Early Life

Existem algunsFatos sobre André, o Apóstolo that you should know for instance that Andrew was born between the years of 5 and 10 in Bethsaida, Palestine’s main fishing port. His parents’ names were Jona and Joanna, and he had a brother called Simon.

Jona era pescador, junto com seu sócio e amigo Zebedeu e seus filhos Tiago e João.

Andrew was naturally inquisitive.

Ele teria começado a frequentar a escola da sinagoga aos cinco anos, onde teria estudado escrituras, astronomia e aritmética.

Life With Jesus

O apóstolo André, cujo nome significa “varonil”, foi o primeiro apóstolo de Jesus Cristo. Ele havia sido discípulo de João Batista, mas quando João declarou Jesus como “o cordeiro de Deus”, André o seguiu e passou um dia com ele.

Andrew went straight to his brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah.” (John 1:41) He accompanied Simon to meet Jesus.

De acordo com Mateus, Simão e André largaram as redes de pesca e seguiram Jesus quando ele passou.

Três episódios envolvendo o apóstolo André são registrados nos Evangelhos.

He and three other disciples questioned Jesus about his prediction that the Temple would be demolished (Mark 13:3; Mark 13:4).

Andrew brought a boy to Jesus with two fish and five barley loaves, which he multiplied to feed 5,000 people (John 6:8; John 6:9; John 6:10; John 6:11; John 6:12; John 6:13).

oapóstolo filipe and Andrew brought some Greeks who wanted to meet Jesus to him (John 12:20; John 12:21; John 12:22).

Embora não seja mencionado na Bíblia, a tradição da igreja afirma que André foi crucificado como mártir em uma cruz em forma de X.

The Gospels tell us very little about Andrew’s holiness, as they do about all of the apostles except Peter and John. He was a preacher.

Isso é suficiente.

Jesus pessoalmente o convocou a proclamar a Boa Nova, a curar com o poder de Jesus e a compartilhar sua vida e morte.

A santidade de hoje não é diferente. É um dom que inclui um chamado à preocupação com o Reino, uma atitude expansiva que deseja nada mais do que compartilhar as riquezas de Cristo com todas as pessoas.

Muitos católicos praticam a Novena de Santo André, também conhecida como Novena de Natal de Santo André, na qual uma oração específica é recitada 15 vezes por dia, desde sua festa em 30 de novembro até o Natal.

Liturgical Calendar

O ano litúrgico no calendário católico romano começa com o Advento, e o primeiro domingo do Advento é sempre o domingo mais próximo da festa de Santo André.

Though Advent can begin as late as December 3, Saint Andrew’s feast (November 30) is traditionally listed as the first saint’s day of the liturgical year, even when the First Sunday of Advent falls after it—an honor befitting of Andrew’s position among the apostles.


Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, Russia, Romania, Amalfi, and Luqa (Malta). Many national flags depict the cross on which he was crucified, serving as a memorial to him.

Por exemplo, a bandeira escocesa (e, mais tarde, a Union Jack e a bandeira da Nova Escócia) inclui um saltire para comemorar a forma da cruz de Santo André. O saltire é também a bandeira de Tenerife e o macaco naval da Rússia.

A festa de André é celebrada em 30 de novembro nas igrejas oriental e ocidental, e é o dia nacional da Escócia. A festa de Santo André é o primeiro dia de festa no Próprio dos Santos nos livros litúrgicos tradicionais da Igreja Católica.

Andrew is revered in the Greek Orthodox tradition as the founder of the See of Constantinople and the source of apostolic succession in this church.

Ele também é uma representação popular em ícones e um nome popular para meninos em vários países com populações predominantemente cristãs.

His Travels

André, como os outros apóstolos, saiu para pregar o evangelho depois da morte, ressurreição e ascensão de Cristo, mas os relatos diferem quanto à extensão de suas viagens.

Andrew, according to Origen and Eusebius, first traveled around the Black Sea as far as Ukraine and Russia, whereas other accounts focus on Andrew’s later evangelization in Byzantium and Asia Minor.

He is credited with establishing the Sea of Byzantium (later Constantinople) in the year 38, which is why he is the patron saint of the Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, even though Andrew was not the first bishop there.

Key Takeaway

Andrew era um dosos doze apóstolos, and he is known as “Protocletus” (the First-Called) because he was the first Apostle to be summoned into Jesus’ service. Andrew and his brother Peter were fishermen on the Sea of Galilee. Both men became Apostles, and while his brother came to symbolize the Church of the West, Andrew came to symbolize the Church of the East.

Hoje, a voz de Santo André continua a apelar a todos os cristãos, especialmente aos cristãos ortodoxos gregos em todo o mundo. Seu espírito instável acena ao longo dos séculos proclamando:

“O Salvador do mundo veio! Ele é o Cristo, o Filho de Deus! ”

This is the call of St. Andrew to all men for “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.” (Hebrews 13:8)

Lugares de tradiçãoAndrew’s martyrdomem 30 de novembro do ano 60.

Andrew was martyred on November 30, 60 (during Nero’s persecution) in the Greek city of Patrae, according to tradition.

A medieval tradition also holds that he did not consider himself worthy of being crucified in the same manner as Christ, and so he was placed on an X-shaped cross, now known as Saint Andrew’s Cross (especially in heraldry and flags).

O governador romano fez com que ele fosse amarrado em vez de pregado na cruz para prolongar a crucificação e, portanto, a agonia de André.

Andrew demonstrated his love for his brother as well as his apostolic zeal when he sought out Peter, convinced that Jesus was the Messiah. “Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus. He first went to his own brother Simon and told him, ‘We have found the Messiah,’ and then brought him to Jesus.” (John 1:40; John 1:41; John 1:42)

Some of Andrew’s relics were brought to Scotland in the fourth century, but parts of his skeleton are kept in the crypt of Amalfi Cathedral in Italy, where they are removed twice a year and produce a clear, water-like substance. The substance, known as “manna,” is said to have miraculous properties.
