We Have Been Called

8 Feb 2013 by SHRCChurch, No Comments »

Simon Peter was just going about his ordinary work fishing when Jesus came to him.  The prophet in our first reading was merely in the Temple praying.  Paul reminds us that Jesus appeared to him on the road to Damascus.  So you see God often comes to us in the midst of very ordinary circumstances.  Now don’t feel that you must be a super person to be called; it is God’s work that we have been called to and listen to his words: “Do not be afraid.”  Peter and his companions were professional fishermen, but on their own they were catching nothing.  When Jesus appeared and told them what to do, the catch was overwhelming!

Look at the life-style in our country; – Jesus needs more “catchers” today.  Yes, we have all been called to spread his message!
