The Sunday Gospel reading is Luke 5: 1-11, is about the Four Fishermen Called as Disciples. In today’s Gospel reading, Christ comes upon several men, Sts. Peter, 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 bidding, they returned to their boats and, putting their faith in Christ’s words, once again let down their nets. And they caught an abundance of fish, enough to break the net, enough indeed to fill two boats and to cause both nearly to sink. Peter seeing this miraculous catch of fish, confesses to the Lord that he, Peter, is a sinful man. Christ responds that while they now catch fish, soon they shall be catching people. Christ was teaching his followers that they must put their trust in Him, even when it seemed a waste of time, even when it seemed foolish, even if they thought they knew better. The second message is that though we try in our lives to accomplish certain things, and fail, we must never cease trying, we must never give up.
