First Reading Isaiah 6:1-2a,3-8
Isaiah describes his vision and call from the Lord.

 

Responsorial Psalm Psalm 138:1-5,7-8
A song of thanks to God who saves us

 

Second Reading 1 Corinthians 15:1-11
Paul reminds the Corinthians of the gospel that he announced to them.

 

Gospel Reading
Luke 5:1-11

 

In today’s Gospel Peter trusts and obeys God's word: "at Thy Word I will lay my nets". In doing so he experiences God's power in the great catch of fish. Because Peter accepts his own inadequacy and sinfulness God is able to change him. The scratches in our lives could become beautiful opportunities for God to turn a negative into a positive, a minus into a plus.
