    St. Andrew was one of Jesus’ closest disciples, but many people know little about him. The feast of St. Andrew is November 30th. Here are 11 things to know and share . . . 1) Who was St. Andrew? He was the brother of St. Peter, who was also known as Simon bar-Jonah. He and Andrew shared the same father, so the latter would have been known as Andrew bar-Jonah. Andrew is regularly mentioned after Simon Peter, which suggests that he was Peter’s younger brother. Like his brother Peter, and their partners James and John, Andrew was initially a fisherman...

    When the buider and I laid off the corners to excavate for my house we oriented the longest side toward the south southwest. By placing most of the windows on this sunniest side, we hoped to capture some of the free heat of every cloudless winter day. This orientation was to have an unexpected consequence each Advent; one that we could not have anticipated. As sun moves southward toward the winter solstice, our apparent sunrise actually becomes earlier; closer to the time listed in an almanac. In the summer the rising sun is blocked for several hours by a hill...

    St. Andrew, the First Called "Considered as the Apostle of the Greeks" VATICAN CITY, JUNE 14, 2006 (Zenit.org).- Here is a translation of Benedict XVI's address at today's general audience, which he dedicated to meditate on "Andrew, the Protoklitos." * * * Dear Brothers and Sisters: In the last two catecheses we have spoken about the figure of St. Peter. Now, in the measure the sources allow us, we want to know the other 11 apostles a bit better. Therefore, today we speak of Simon Peter's brother, St. Andrew, who was also one of the Twelve. What first impresses one...

    Students from St. Louis de Montfort Acadmeny pose for a picture in front of Dunnottar Castle, on the east coast of Scotland. Around Scotland for Our Ladyby Paul FolleyUntil recently, it would have been rash to travel around staunchly Presbyterian Scotland handing out fliers about Our Lady. However, times have changed and what the eight of us, consisting of myself and seven American high school students from the TFP-staffed Saint Louis de Montfort Academy in Pennsylvania, proposed to do for three weeks in June 2005 was precisely that. We would start in Glasgow and work east to Edinburgh, and...

    As sun moves southward toward the winter solstice, my apparent sunrise actually becomes earlier; closer to the time listed in an almanac. In the summer the rising sun is blocked for several hours by hill to the northeast; in the winter sunrise is almost directly over the notch in the hills carved by a stream draining nearly two dozen square miles. For a few days at the end of November the morning sunrise streams through my office window, then through the narrow hallway leading to the rest of the house, above the kitchen counter-wall before coming to rest squarely on...

    Earth Justice ^ | 28July 2004 | Monica Reimer, Earthjustice
    Tallahassee, FL-- A judge ordered the federal government today to designate critical habitat for the St. Andrew beach mouse, as required by the Endangered Species Act. The rare mouse was listed as endangered in 1998, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has refused to specify the areas of habitat that are critical to the species’ recovery, or the measures that should be taken to preserve those areas. Today’s order comes in response to an Earthjustice lawsuit filed on behalf of the Center for Biological Diversity and requires that critical habitat be designated by September 2006. The St. Andrew beach...

    THE NEW leader of Scotland’s Catholics has called for St Andrew’s Day to be made a national holiday. Cardinal Keith O’Brien also said he wanted to use his position "re-Christianise Scotland" and urged civic leaders to set up nativity scenes. O’Brien, the Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, was speaking at a Mass of Thanksgiving in St Mary’s Cathedral to mark his elevation to the College of Cardinals last month. He told the congregation in Edinburgh, which included First Minister Jack McConnell and SNP leader John Swinney: "I ask you all to recognise the feast of our patron saint, St...
