Come and See
The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!" When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What do you want?" They said, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?" "Come," he replied, "and you will see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. (Jn 1:35-39) - New International Version see http://www.biblegateway.com/ "Come and see."
These were the simple words of Jesus as he invited his disciples to share in his life and mission. These same words invite us today to learn more about religious life as a means to live the gospel in our times.
