THE GOSPEL

Luke 5:1-11

Astonishment at the catch of fish they had made seized him.

 Broken nets,
    hold overs—
loaded
with
 fish.

“Do not be afraid.
From here on
you will be
catching
women
and
  men.”

Alright then,

give us your worthiness 
instead of our un-
worthiness;
make us
deeper
than
our
doubts.
Let us fall
on our knees.
as did Simon Peter.
Help us in the catching
and surely in the being caught.


THE FIRST READING

Isaiah 6:1-2a, 3-8

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
“Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?”

“Here I am;
send
me!”

Oh God,
give me your leap-of-faith grace.
Help me to leave the shore
 and to relish the water,
and go directly
where you
wish
me
to
be.
Let 
nothing 

hold me back.

THE SECOND READING
1 Corinthians 15:1-11 or 15:3-8, 11

Last of all, as to one born abnormally, he appeared to me.
For I am the least of all the apostles.

 Lord,

just
as you
did with Paul,
 give us your grace
to overcome the chasm
that lies between who we are
 and whomever you might call us to be.
