Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Fishers of Men” – Faith: Jesus calls His disciples, “Come, I will make you fishers of men”. At once, they left their nets and followed Him. Are we open or reluctant and resistant to follow God’s Will? Are there any attachments that are preventing us from developing a deeper love, and lasting peace and joy with Jesus?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
After John had been arrested, Jesus went into Galilee. There he proclaimed the gospel from God saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.’
As he was walking along by the Lake of Galilee he saw Simon and Simon’s brother Andrew casting a net in the lake – for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, ‘Come after me and I will make you into fishers of people.’ And at once they left their nets and followed him.
Going on a little further, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they too were in their boat, mending the nets. At once he called them and, leaving their father Zebedee in the boat with the men he employed, they went after him.
