“The power of obedience! The lake of Gennesareth had denied its fishes to Peter’s nets. A whole night in vain. Then, obedient, he lowered his net again to the water and they caught ‘a huge number of fish.’ Believe me: the miracle is repeated each day.”
St. Josemaria Escriva
How full am I willing to have “my nets” be? Dear Lord, help me resolve to be obedient to you in all things. Let me respond spontaneously and with love to all that You ask of me – the easy things and the most difficult. Help me to remember that Your obedience brought redemptive grace into the world. May my obedience be united to Yours so that a “big catch” may be obtained for the Kingdom of God. Mother Mary, intercede for me. Amen.
