To young men who perceive in their heart, even only dimly, a yearning to give to their lives a sense of fullness, Christ shows a way.
There are some, like Andrew and John – the beloved disciple – in the Gospel (John 1:35-39), who were already ready to set out. They had the desire of a true conversion.
They felt inwardly attracted by the love of the merciful God.
When they heard the Baptist saying:
”Behold the Lamb of God”
they caught the suggestion and they walked in the direction of Jesus.
