Friends of the Rosary:

Today’s Gospel (St. John 1:35-42) gives an account of the vocation of the first four Apostles who found Christ Jesus, the Lamb of God, and decided to follow him.

This event was the beginning of vocations, a movement of holiness that will last until the end of the world. It’s men with a sinful human nature who belong to the Church of Christ, which is assisted by divine aid.

Another momentous fact is Christ’s choice of the Apostles among “the lowly and the humble to confound the wise.” The first four Apostles, as well as the other eight, were simple fishermen from Galilee, not men of education or any social standing in their communities.

He could have converted and chosen some of the more highly educated scribes of Jerusalem, or some of the Roman centurions then in Palestine, or some of the many philosophers in Greece, or even Roman senators whose influence as Christian teachers would carry such weight with the educated elite of the empire. But he did not.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
