Month of Andrew

My brother Andrew was born in this month of November. Fitting then, that we celebrate the feast of St. Andrew the Apostle today, at the close of the month. There is also a St. Andrew Dung Lac, a companion Martyr of Vietnam named St. Andrew Nguyen, and an 8th century martyr of Iconocalsm named St. Andrew. I'd never heard of this November saint, a Theatine named Andrew Avellino. But he would have been happy to die in the same month as his namesake.

I wish my brother all the best this month and every month of his life.
