Feast of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

First John 3: 7- 10

3:7Little sons, let no one deceive you. Whoever does justice is just, even as he also is just.
3:8Whoever commits sin is of the devil. For the devil sins from the beginning. For this reason, the Son of God appeared, so that he might eradicate the works of the devil.
3:9All those who have been born of God do not commit sin. For the offspring of God abides in them, and he is not able to sin, because he was born of God.
3:10In this way, the sons of God are made manifest, and also the sons of the devil. Everyone who is not just, is not of God, as also anyone who does not love his brother.

John 1: 35- 42

1:35The next day again, John was standing with two of his disciples.
1:36And catching sight of Jesus walking, he said, “Behold, the Lamb of God.”
1:37And two disciples were listening to him speaking. And they followed Jesus.
1:38Then Jesus, turning around and seeing them following him, said to them, “What are you seeking?” And they said to him, “Rabbi (which means in translation, Teacher), where do you live?”
1:39He said to them, “Come and see.” They went and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day. Now it was about the tenth hour.
1:40And Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who had heard about him from John and had followed him.
1:41First, he found his brother Simon, and he said to him, “We have found the Messiah,” (which is translated as the Christ).
1:42And he led him to Jesus. And Jesus, gazing at him, said: “You are Simon, son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas,” (which is translated as Peter).
