St Leo’s, Dumbreck

Mass of St Andrew’s Day
November 30th 2010

 When Christ our Lord to Andrew cried: “Come, thou, and follow me,”
The fisher left his net beside the sea of Galilee.
To teach the truth his Master taught, to tread the path he trod
Was all his will and thus he brought unnumbered souls to God.

 When Andrew’s hour had come and he was doomed, like Christ, to die,
He kissed his cross exultingly, and this his noble cry:
“O Noble Cross, O Precious Wood, I long have yearned for thee;
uplift me to my only good who died on thee for me.”

 St Andrew now in bliss above thy fervent prayers renew
That Scotland yet again may love the faith entire and true;
That I the cross allotted me may bear with patient love!
‘Twill lift me as it lifted thee  to reign with Christ above.

St Andrew’s Day Intercessions

 We pray that as Jesus looked on Andrew as a friend and disciple,
So God will bless Scotland, our country, which has Andrew as a patron,
And will guide each of us to follow Andrew’s example of faithfulness.
Lord, hear us

 We pray for the churches in Scotland
aware of our many different traditions and understandings,
and aware also of our common faith and baptism,
that we may increasingly recognise your image and likeness
in each of our sisters and brothers,
and bear more faithful witness to the Gospel.
Lord, hear us

 We pray that the crosses of Jesus and of Andrew
may become an ever clearer sign of hope for people everywhere.
That people of other faiths and cultures
may grow closer  in respect and love for one another
and build up God’s kingdom of justice and peace.
Lord, hear us

 We pray for the sick in our families and community,
And for those who care for them.
We pray for our dead, and for those who mourn.
Lord, hear us

Father, I pray for them:  may they be one in us
So that the world may believe
it was you who sent me,
it was you who sent me.
