What if Jesus Picked the Apostles Like the Pope is Chosen?

Jesus didn’t look for or choose from the most prestigious men to become apostles. They were common people, fisherman, educated, uneducated, tax collectors… not the people any of us would have picked, right? The beginning of Jesus’ mission was pretty much completed in secret. He didn’t announce to the world “Hey, I’m picking the twelve apostles… everyone look at me and wait anxiously while I make my decision…”

I’m watching all the fanfare going on while they choose the next Pope to lead the Catholic church. I can’t help but think that Jesus would have never done it this way. The Catholics are choosing from the “best of the best.” All eyes from all over the world are on the vatican. It’s just weird to me…
