Friday of the 34th Week
Feast f St. Andrew
All school Mass
Pick a student and whisper this message to them:
How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!
Tell this student: I want you to go and whisper that message to someone else. Continue having the students share this statement with about six or seven students. Ask the last student, “What was the message you were told?
How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news?
What I like about St. Andrew is when he was chosen to follow Christ, he did, but when he was not chosen to be part of the inner circle with Christ he did not complain. The inner circle of Jesus was Peter, James, and John. Andrew still became an apostle and share what he knew about the good news of Jesus Christ.
What I like about what Jesus did was not say to Andrew, “Come back when you have your whole life together?” Jesus invites all of them and uses them to spread the good news one person at a time.
The sharing of the Good News of Jesus Christ in the time of Jesus began in the same way with one person telling another person what they knew about Jesus. We are called to spread what we know about Jesus Christ one person at a time with all of our strengths and all of our challenges. A call to be a disciple of Jesus is always about treating people with respect and as a person created in the image and likeness of God. May we be good disciples of Jesus Christ this day?
