Feast of St. Andrew, Apostle


“As the Lord was walking by the Sea ofChrist Galilee, he saw Peter and Andrew casting their nets into the sea. And he said to them, ‘Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ Immediately they left their nets and followed him.”

                             ~Matthew 4: 18, 19-20

For Reflection:

Through our baptism, Jesus has called each one of us to be “fishers of men.” To what extent am I willing to leave my nets “immediately” and follow Him?

Chapter 1   The Annunciation
But in a way, God extends this same call to every woman. Will you bring My Son into the world? Will you carry Him in the womb of your heart as Mary carried Him in the womb of her body? Will you give birth to Him in the lives of others so they can experience life in Jesus? Like the Blessed Mother, you and I have a choice. We can sayyesto God’s request, or we can sayno.” And, just like Mary’s response, our answer has eternal consequences both in our lives and in the lives of others. If we say yesas Mary did, God will empower us with His Holy Spirit, and we too will be filled with the life of Jesus Christ. Like Mary, we will become a channel of grace that brings the love of God into the world. And because our world is in such need of God today, all of heaven is holding its breath waiting for our response.
