GOD WITH US ONLINE CATECHETICAL RESOURCES FOR 16TH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST (from 9/25/2022): https://godwithusonline.org/reflections/the-sixteenth-sunday-after-pentecost-ruthenian/

The Sunday Gospel reading, Luke 5: 1-11, is about the Four Fishermen Called as Disciples. In today’s reading, Christ comes upon several men, Sts. Peter, Andrew, James, and John who, the Gospel says, had been fishing all through the night and had caught nothing. After spending some time teaching His message, Christ turned his attention to the fishermen. At the Lord’s request, the fisherman returned to their boats, and with faith in Christ’s words, let out their nets again.  This time, they caught many fish, which could break the net, fill two boats, and nearly sink them. After Peter saw this miracle, he confessed to Jesus, he was a sinful man. Christ tells him that though they now catch fish, soon they shall be catching people. Christ taught them 2 messages: 1. to put their trust in Him, even when they thought it foolish or when they thought they knew better, and 2. though we try to accomplish certain things in our lives, and fail, we must never stop trying, we must never give up.
