09-06-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 6, 2018
Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.”  When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed him. Lk_5:1-11

Simon thought he knew quite a bit about fishing.  And when they were not biting or schooling for a net catch, it was just not the right time for fishing.  So when Jesus asked them to cast the net for a catch, along with all the work associated with that task, Simon hesitated!  But knowing that this was JESUS asking, he did so anyway, with blind faith.  It was an absolutely miraculous catch!  And when something that unusual, that extraordinary, happens in our lives, beloved, we know for sure, that there truly is a power far beyond anything our feeble intelligence can fathom.  We know it’s God in our midst.

Today Jesus, Simon Peter and St. Paul teach us to trust in God.  When the world seems to have us in a strangle-hold, trust in God.  When we have lost all direction, or to the contrary, think we know everything, trust in God – we don’t!  He will guide us, He will amaze us, He will be our one and only salvation in a world without a compass.
