My Catholic Devotion Library reports Andrew's youth was spent with hoodlums and troublemakers, with Andrew as ringleader.  Miraculously, he stopped at Church late one night and abruptly resolved to seek Carmelite priesthood, and after ordination and four years education in Paris, he was chosen Prior of his monastery and later Bishop of Fiesole.  The Library reports "Andrew dedicated himself to becoming holy.  He saw no visions, suffered no persecutions, and was never asked to be a martyr.  He simply set about the task of accepting every job, every complaint, and every irksome problem of each day, and consecrating them to God with all the love and energy he had once wasted."
