Theme: How lovely are your feet?

Homily for Tuesday November 30 2021
Feast of St Andrew
Do you have beautiful feet? St. Paul tells us today that the feet of one who brings good news are always lovely to behold. The Apostles had such lovely feet; they couldn’t stay in one place, but went all over, proclaiming the good news of salvation to the ends of the earth. Did you know Andrew quickly went to call Simon his brother in John’s gospel, after he saw Christ? In Matthew’s gospel, Simon and Andrew abandoned their lives to follow Jesus, when he called them. He made their feet a welcome sound as he made them fishers of men.
Dear friends, have you confessed Jesus Christ as Lord with your lips, and do you believe that God raised him from the dead in your heart? Are you baptised and confirmed in the Holy Spirit? Then you’ve been called and sent, and it is our responsibility to lead others to Christ as well. Even in death, St Andrew continued preaching the good news. Legend has it that he was largely venerated in ancient times and became patron saint of Scotland, since some of his bones were buried at the place where the town of St Andrew’s now stands. Hurry, let’s make our feet lovely by becoming fishers of men.
Good morning dear. God bless your day ahead. Happy last day of the month of November.
