St Andrew

Today is the feast of St Andrew. You can read all about him here or here. But today I'd like to focus on what our Gospel reading tells us about him. He was already with John the Baptist at the Jordon when he saw Jesus. He was spiritually seeking and open to revelation from God. This was what led him to John. This is what caused him to follow Jesus. The reading for Morning Prayer today from Sirach describes his approach beautifully. Today let us remember his seeking heart that was open to the Word of God ... and consider the example it sets for us in how to be followers of Christ. Amen.
