Pastor’s Reflection , February 10, 2019

Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

 In this week’s Mass readings, we find two men, Peter and Isaiah, who have life changing encounters with Almighty God. Peter’s encounter occurs on a fishing boat. They had been fishing all night with no success. Jesus asks them to put out their nets one more time; the result?—A miraculous, overflowing catch of fish. Pope Benedict describes Peter’s reaction as follows: …the overflowing catch of fish…profoundly alarms Peter. He falls at Jesus’ feet in the posture of adoration and says: “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord” (Lk 5:8). In what has just happened, Peter recognizes the power of God himself working through Jesus’ words, and this direct encounter with the living God in Jesus shakes him to the core of his being. In the light of this presence, and under its power, man realizes how pitifully small he is. He cannot bear the awe-inspiring grandeur of God—it is too enormous for him… [this is] one of the most powerful illustrations Continued…
