The first words spoken by Jesus to his disciples in the Gospel of St. John (Jn. 1:39-41) ask the question, What are you looking for? As the conversation develops, Jesus invites them to Come and See where he lives. They went and they stayed. It was a vocation moment, an invitation to relationship. In this encounter with Jesus the disciples found what they had been looking for and their lives were changed forever. Religious life begins in the meeting place where heart speaks to heart.
What are you looking for? The search question is central to every human journey. It is an endless question, a deciding question. As we follow the disciples in the Gospel story we observe how the new vision offered by Jesus, of living together in harmony in this our common home, became for them a hope, a dream, the purpose of life’s journey. In the attraction of this awakening, they left their nets on the shore and followed him.
