Andrew and his brother, Peter, were fishermen until Jesus invited, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." Andrew, a disciple of St. John the Baptist, was prepared to follow Jesus. He became one of the twelve apostles and continued to preach after Jesus' resurrection. For evangelizing in Greece, Andrew was tied to an X-shaped cross, where he preached for two more days until his final breath.
