For 4 January 2023, Memorial of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, based on 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).

Thank you Mary Ellen for your preaching today. I was drawn by the word “courage”. As I age in religious life, I do find myself asking Jesus for “courage’ to follow him and not get distracted by so many other items in my life. Thank you for this reminder to listen again and again to Jesus who says,
“Come, follow Me.”
Blessings on your continued preaching in 2023,
