- In this initial, St. Andrew is identified by his attribute, the saltire, or X-shaped, cross he carries underneath his left arm. According to his legend, St. Andrew was martyred by crucifixion on such a cross. He points to a scroll inscribed with the words 'Invenimus Messiam' (We have found Christ) from John 1:41. These are the words that he says to his brother Simon Peter in John after meeting Christ for the first time. The initial begins the first antiphon for this feast (Nov. 3).
