SAINTS OF THE DAY: Blessed Andrew the Fool-For-Christ at Constantinople is commemorated on October 2. He was a Slav and lived in the tenth century in Constantinople. From his early years, he loved God’s Church and the Holy Scriptures. Once during a dream, the saint beheld a vision of two armies. In the one were men in radiant garb, in the other, black and fiercesome devils. An angel of God, who held wondrous crowns, said to Andrew, that these crowns were not adornments from the earthly world, but rather a celestial treasure, with which the Lord rewards His warriors, victorious over the dark hordes. “Proceed with this good deed,” the angel said to Andrew. “Be a fool for My sake and you will receive much in the day of My Kingdom.”
The saint perceived that it was the Lord Himself summoning him to this deed. From that time Andrew began to go about the streets in rags, as though his mind had become muddled. For many years the saint endured mockery and insults. With indifference, he underwent beatings, hunger, thirst, cold, and heat, begging for alms and giving them away to the poor. For his great forbearance and humility, the saint received from the Lord the gift of prophecy and wisdom, saving many from spiritual perils, and he unmasked the impiety of many. While praying at the Blachernae church, Saint Andrew beheld the Most Holy Mother of God, holding her veil over those praying under her Protection (October 1). Blessed Andrew died in the year 936.

WHY is morning prayer important?1) Morning prayer is very important because you meet God before anyone else. 2) You encounter God before you encounter life’s troubles. 3) You have an encounter with God sooner than you do with the devil. 4) You get news from Heaven before you get news from earth. 5) You kneel before God so you don’t bow before people. 6) You honor God before you honor men. 7) You feed your Spirit before your body. 8)You pronounce the name of Jesus before any other names. 9) You look at Jesus Christ before you look in the mirror. 10) You put your heart in order before your home. Therefore, wake up with the name of the Lord Jesus Christ on your lips. Starting the morning with prayer is the secret of success to obtain strength and grace from the Source of life for the whole day.
