Fishing_NetsClick here to download this week’s bulletin.  Here it is, Saint Paul gives the Corinthians – and us – the fundamental teaching of the Church: Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried, and was raised from the dead on the third day. Switch, now, to the conversation between Jesus and Simon Peter in the gospel. Peter, ever the Everyman says skeptically, “… at your command I will lower the nets.” Look what happens: a catch filling two boats, and the assuring words, “Do not be afraid.” On the heels of this assurance is a task: “from now on you will be catching men … they brought their boats to the shore, left everything, and followed him.” Our job today is to proclaim, without fear and with confi- dence in Jesus Christ, our fundamental belief: Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried, and was raised from the dead on the third day. Let’s lower our nets!
