Gospel text (Jn 1,35-42): Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard what John [Baptist] had said and followed Jesus. Early the next morning he found his brother Simon and said to him, «We have found the Messiah» (which means the Christ), and he brought Simon to Jesus. As John stood with two of his disciples, Jesus walked by, John looked at him and said, «There is the Lamb of God». On hearing this, the two disciples followed Jesus. He turned and saw them following, and He said to them, «What are you looking for?». They answered, «Rabbi (which means Master), where are you staying?». Jesus said, «Come and see». So they went and saw where he stayed and spent the rest of that day with him. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon. Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard what John had said and followed Jesus. Early the next morning he found his brother Simon and said to him, «We have found the Messiah» (which means the Christ), and he brought Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, «You are Simon, son of John, but you shall be called Cephas» (which means Rock).

Today we see how the group of followers of Jesus begins to form: everything begins with the courage and honesty of John the Baptist. John himself speaks so well of Jesus Christ that his own friends go after Jesus and stay with Him. And those, in turn, speak to others ... and so Peter came (later he will be the first Pope!).

- Do you talk about Jesus to your friends with enthusiasm?
