About Today Readings

St Andrew

Romans 10:9-18. Their message goes out through all the earth – Psalm 18(19):2-5. Matthew 4:18-22.

‘I will make you fishers of men’

The readings today are a beautiful reflection of the invitational call to mission, to which St Andrew responded so generously that he gave his life.

The Gospel tells the story of Jesus’ invitation to two sets of brothers – Andrew and his brother Peter, James and his brother John – and their unhesitating response.

St Paul reminds the Roman community that faith comes from hearing the word of Christ. He also reminds the community that ‘Not everyone, of course, listens to the Good News.’

Today, on this feast of St Andrew, one of the first to be called by Jesus, let us remind ourselves of our own invitational calling from God. Do we respond unhesitatingly? Do we respond generously? Do we hear the Good News?
