Andrea "Andy" Sachs (The Devil Wears Prada) Andy is the much put-upon heroine of The Devil Wears Prada, the popular 2004 novel by Lauren Weisberger, made into an equally popular 2006 movie starring Anne Hathaway as Andy and Myrl Streep as her boss from you-know-where, Miranda Priestly. Andrea is a recent starry eyed college graduate with dreams of becoming a serious journalist in New York. Her first job, however, is as an assistant to Editor in Chief Priestly at the fictional style magazine, Runway. Thrust into the fast paced world of high fashion, rubbing elbows with the glitterati rather than the literati, and feeling she is losing her soul, Andrea struggles to keep up with the demands of her boss and maintain her own dreams intact. Hilarious and poignant by turns, both book and movie align us squarely with Andy in that determination, with a final, triumphant resolution.

St. Andrew (1st Century) - Saint Andrew was a fisherman in Galilee at the time of Jesus in the first century. He and his brother, Peter, were the first disciples called upon by Jesus. "Immediately they left their nets and followed him." (Matthew 4:20). St. Andrew is often referred to as the Strong Apostle – a man of courage, valor, and manliness. Even his name has noble meaning, coming from the Greek word "andreios", which translates to "manly, brave". Whoever dares to follow Christ must be andreios (manly, courageous), an Andrew. As the first to follow Jesus, along with John the Baptist, many old manuscripts refer to him with the title of honor: "the first-called." St. Andrew went onto preach after the Resurrection and is traditionally believed to have been martyred on an “X” shaped cross, which is how he is often artistically rendered. The patron saint of Scotland, legend has it that St. Andrew’s bones were brought to modern-day St. Andrew, Scotland after being called upon by an angel to carry the relics “towards the ends of the earth” and erect a church to house the bones. Present day St. Andrew is home to the famous golf course as well as the third oldest university in the U.K. (St. Andrews University) after Oxford and Cambridge.
