Simon Peter, Andrew, James and John were confronted by that light that shined in Galilee when Jesus said: “Follow me” (Matthew 4:18-22). It is “follow me” in the sense of learning a way of life. It is learning a way of life in response to that light that shines in the darkness of human sin, hatred, malice, and violence. Through the Holy Spirit, may that light shine in the midst of darkness. I close with these words of St. Bede: May that morning star which never sets, Christ our light, find us aflame with love until the world is enlightened with love.
