Monday of the 1 week of Advent (Feast of St. Andrew) ‘b’

MT 4:18-22

What did Jesus look like when He called His first disciples? What was His face like? What did voice sound like? What were His gestures? I always wonder about these questions when I read this Gospel passage. There must have been something so very powerful in Jesus that when He tells Simon and Andrew: “come after me, and I will make you fishers of men,” they immediately leave everything behind and follow Him. Every normal human being would think twice before following a stranger and leaving literally everything behind, including home, job, family, friends and the village they grew up in. That’s why I think that there must have been something extraordinary, something so powerful in Jesus’ person and in His call that these people simply trusted without any hesitation and followed Him. Am I able to trust Jesus and follow Him no matter the cost?
