This Weekend at SJTW

In the Readings
First Reading Isaiah 6:1-2a, 3-8
In the First Reading, Isaiah tells us of when he saw the Lord. Isaiah saw God sitting on a high throne with angels singing His praises. Isaiah was scared because he was a sinner and yet he was looking upon God. An angel touched Isaiah’s mouth with an ember and told him that he was forgiven and his sin was removed. Then God asked, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” Isaiah replied, “Here I am, send me!”
Second Reading 1 Corinthians 15:1-11
In the Second Reading, Paul reminds us that we are saved through the Gospel he preaches if we believe it and follow it. He tells us Christ died for our sins, was buried and was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. After rising, Jesus appeared to many people including the Apostles, Cephas, James and more than 500 disciples. Last of all, Jesus appeared to Paul even though Paul persecuted Christians. Paul then says, “Therefore, whether it be I or they, so we preach and so you believed.”
Gospel Luke 5:1-11
In the Gospel, Jesus gets into a boat belonging to Simon. After teaching the crowds from the boat, Jesus tells Simon to cast his nets. Simon says, “Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at Your command I will lower the nets.” They catch so many fish that the boats are close to sinking. When Simon Peter sees this, he falls at Jesus’ feet and says, “Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man.” Jesus replies, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.” When they return to shore, the leave everything and follow Jesus.
