Dear Parish Family,

The Gospel of Luke (5:1-11) takes us to the Lake of Gennesaret and the great catch of fish. Simon Peter “fell at the knees of Jesus” and was told by the Lord that, from now on, he would “be catching men.” When we place ourselves, our labors, our hopes and dreams, our anxieties and all that we have and are in the hands of God, great things can truly happen. Simon said, “Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing.” Still, he added, “But at your command I will lower the nets.”

We do well to ask ourselves if we are placing our trust in the Lord in all the areas of our lives. Surely we must work with diligence and utilize our God-given abilities. At the same time, there is much that is beyond our control. I am reminded of the Serenity Prayer which says:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

May God bless you.

Fr. Dan Redmond
