feast of saint Andrew
Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew,
casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen.
He said to them,
“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
At once they left their nets and followed him.
Todays reading tells how quickly Andrew and Peter followed Jesus. During Advent can I compare their response to those that will be part of the nativity scene? How quickly the shepherds go to see the newborn King. How diligently and deliberately those magi follow that star that leads to a King in a manger.
