Jesus with fishermen,by Jean van Orley in Sint-Salvator by Fr. Alan Hartway, C.PP.S.
Vocation call and response are the focus on the readings in many ways. We respond to this call because of a historical experience of encounter with the divine, with Jesus, in our lives. We catch people by being “menders of nets,” in other words through strengthening the “vinculum caritatis” among peoples. This takes tenderness, mercy, and great care.
