(Patron Saint of Fishermen, Greece, Russia, Scotland)
Brother of Simon Peter,
you heard John the Baptist say:
“Behold the Lamb of God,”
and you chose to follow Jesus.
Leaving your nets,
you became a successful fisher of souls.
Lover of the Crucified Christ,
you too were crucified like him.
Teach us to live and suffer for Him
and to win many souls for Christ.
