John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
"Behold, the Lamb of God."
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus.
Jesus turned and saw them following him and 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 you will see."
So they went and saw where Jesus was staying,
and they stayed with him that day.
It was about four in the afternoon.
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.
OFFERING OF THE DAY BY ST THERESE
My Lord, I offer You all the actions I did today,
for the intentions and the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus;
I would like to sanctify the beating of my heart, my thoughts
and my most simple work by joining them to His most infinite merits,
to repair my faults by throwing them in the blaze of His Merciful Love.
O my God I ask You for myself and for those I love for
the grace to accomplish perfectly Your holy wish,
to accept for Your Love the joys and pains of this passage that is life
so that one day we can be reunited in Heaven for all eternity. St. Therese National Office, Dublin, Ireland
