Jesus departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John...
Today Jesus hasn’t slept: He has been praying all night! For the Apostles, the ones He would choose a few hours later; for all Christians ... and for us, arrived at the Church twenty centuries later.
-We follow those who were first! That is why Christ also prayed for us.
