One of them was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. At once he found his brother Simon and told him : « We have found the Messiah » – (this word means « Christ »). Then he took Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said : «Your name is Simon, the son of John ; but you will be called Cephas » (this is the same as Peter and means « a rock »). (John 1 : 40-42)
Do not fear !
Word of Claude
Yes, Christians, everything that is happening to us in this life, happens because God, who always loved us and who still loves us even more than we love each other, ordered it or allowed it to happen. He looks at us as his creatures, as his children, as his heirs, as his images. The gifts we have received from him have overcome all our desires ; they even overcome all we can imagine, and those we receive every day can neither be measured nor counted.
