Brothers and sisters:
In times past, God spoke in partial and various ways
to our ancestors through the prophets;
in these last days, he spoke to us through the Son.
Jesus said to them,
“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Christian revelation remarkably declares that God has spoken to us human beings . . . by becoming one with us in the Son. And so our encounter with God through the Scriptures invites us to hear that Word as being addressed to us. So when Jesus calls his disciples, “Come follow me,” they drop everything and follow him.
