(St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Religious)
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus. He first found his own brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah,” which is translated Christ. Then he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John; you will be called Cephas,” which is translated Peter. Jn_1:35-42
Among the earliest of the chosen disciples of Jesus was Andrew’s brother Simon. Jesus knew immediately that Simon would be something special. And with that, Simon was given the nickname Peter. It was this Simon Peter who would lead the 11 after the completion of Jesus’ life with us in the flesh. And it was this same Peter who would bring thousands into the Faith. Have you found the Messiah yet, beloved? Know, that He is looking for you. And He has a special name for you, as well.
