St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

John 1: 35-42

The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, “Look, here is the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and see.”

They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated Anointed).He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas” (which is translated Peter).

Memorable Moment

When Jesus pointed out the ‘Lamb of God’ to the two disciples, they went to Jesus and asked him where he lived. “Come and see,” Jesus answered. (It was then about four o’clock in the afternoon.) [John 1:39]

Ask people where they were when President John Kennedy was shot. Many remember not only the exact time but also the exact place.  Similarly, the two disciples remembered where they first met Jesus. One of these two disciples was Andrew; the other is unnamed. Many people, however, think it was John himself, noting his reference to the exact time and place of the meeting: four in the afternoon on the banks of the Jordan.

What is one memorable moment that I can recall in my own relationship with Jesus?

Prayer

“I watch what I do to see what I really believe.”  Sister Helen Prejean, Author of Dead Man Walking

Lord, today you stop us in our tracks. You ask us a question core to our identity, “What are you looking for?”  St. Ignatius reminds us “that our only desire and our one choice should be this: I want and I choose what better leads to the deepening of God’s life in me.” We give you our day, Lord, and we entrust to you everyone we love. And as we interact with different people, we pray that our behavior and our motive give witness to our answer to your question, “What are you looking for?”

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org
