Office of Vocations As he was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers,
Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew,
casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen.
He said to them, "Come after me,
and I will make you fishers of men."
At once they left their nets and followed him.
~ Matthew 4:18-20
