Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time February 07, 2016


In today’s Gospel we hear the story of Jesus calling his first disciples to follow him. Luke is the only one who tells us this dramatic story of the great and miraculous catch of fish and how the fishermen were at first very frightened. But they then recognized that Jesus was asking them to do something special: to stop doing their regular work of fishing and leave everything and follow him. What a hard thing that must have been. But they did it.

Questions:
1. How many of the details of this story can you remember? (You can find it in the Bible: Luke 5: 1—11.) Put yourself in Peter’s place: a longtime fisherman who has caught nothing all night, who is told by a carpenter to do something crazy: throw out your nets when the best fishing

2. Jesus tells Simon that now instead of catching fish, he will be “catching men”. What do you think Jesus means? How can you do what Jesus is asking?
