MEMORIAL, SAINT ELIZABETH ANN SETON
MEMORIAL, SAINT ELIZABETH ANN SETON
WEDNESDAY BEFORE EPIPHANY – YEAR II
1 Jn 3:7-10 / Jn 1:35-42
1 JOHN 3:7-10
My little children, do not be led as tray; those who do what is right
are upright, just as Jesus Christ is upright. But those who sin belong
to the devil, for the devil sins from the beginning. This is why the
Son of God was shown to us, he was to undo the works of the devil.
Those born of God do not sin, for the seed of God remains in them;
they cannot sin because they are born of God. What is the way to
recognize the children of God and those of the devil? The one who does
not do what is right is not of God; so, too, the one who does not love
his brother or sister.
On the following day John was standing there again with two of his
disciples. As Jesus walked by, John looked at him and said, "There is
the Lamb of God." On hearing this, the two disciples followed Jesus.
He turned and saw them following, and he said to them, "What are you
looking for?" They answered, "Rabbi (which means Master), where are
you staying?" Jesus said, "Come and see." So they went and saw where
he stayed, and spent the rest of that day with him. It was about four
o'clock in the afternoon. Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one
of the two who heard what John had said, and followed Jesus. Early the
next morning he found his brother Simon and said to him, "We have
found the Messiah" (which means the Christ), and he brought Simon to
Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon, son of John, but
you shall be called Cephas" (which means Rock).
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton was a happily married woman with five children
and a devoted husband. Tragically, during a trip to Italy, her husband
died. During this time of bereavement, their Catholic friends showered
her with such sympathy, help, and compassion that she decided to
become a Catholic herself. A few years later, she started a grade
school in Baltimore. From then on, her accomplishments included
establishing an order that eventually laid the foundation for
parochial schools in America.
Let us learn from St. Seton's Catholic friends who showed her so much
caring humanity that she resolved to become one of them.
When we are down and out, let us try to forget our sadness and,
instead, work to make the world a better place to live in. When we see
other people in need of succor and support, let us give them the care
and love that they need, remembering that God will be with us – all
