Homily for Trinity 5

Yes, Jesus told Peter and the others to let down their nets for a great catch of fish, but it was the Lord who effected that great catch. Thus Peter humbly fell at Jesus' feet, confessing his sin and unworthiness.

When our Lord calls us, His Church, to "let down the nets" of the Gospel and thus "catch people alive" by bringing them into the boat of the Church, He is the one who effects such a catch. Yesterday's homily traced this theme - "Let Down Your Nets" - through all three Scripture readings, 1 Kings 19:11-19; 1 Peter 3:9-15; and Luke 5:1-11.
