Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 10, 2013

TODAY (Green)  Is 6:1-2a 3-8, 1 Cor 15:1-11, Lk 5:1-11

NEXT WEEK (Violet) Dt 264-10, Rom 10:8-13, Lk 4:1-13

Simon Peter begins a more sure relationship with Jesus by allowing him to take command of his boat. He then moves to allowing Jesus to take command of his heart, openly confessing the truth about himself (“I am a sinful man”) Finally, he allows Jesus to take command of his whole life (“left everything and followed him”). Like Peter, we are to allow Jesus to take command of us--our possessions, our hearts, our lives. At the same time, we receive all—more than even an abundant ”catch of fish,” we receive Life.
