Happy St Andrew's Day

Adductus Andreas ad locum martyrii, cum crucem vidisset, longe exclamare coepit:
O BONA CRUX, quae decorem ex membris Domini suscepisti, diu desiderata, sollicite amata, sine intermissione quaesita, et aliquando cupienti animo praeparata: accipe me ab hominibus, et redde me magistro meo; ut per te me recipiat, qui per te me redemit.


O blessed St Andrew, First-Called and Fisher of Men, of old thou didst summon thy brother St Peter into the presence of the Saviour; obtain now, we beseech thee, by thy powerful intercession for the people of Scotland that they might recognise in his successor the Vicar of Christ, and so enter into the vision of Him Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
