Be still and know that I am God! (PS 46:11)

People on Pilgrimage sit and contribute to this monument of human divine striving.
Florida Trail Association gets a place among the mementoes.

Greetings on this the Thursday of the Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time
Readings: 1 Cor 3:18-23; Ps 24:1bc-2, 3-4ab, 5-6; Lk 5:1-11
Notes: We strive. We strive for the good and at other times not for the good.

There is another path.

Remember the old saying: Don’t just sit there, do something!

In the logic of God: Don’t just do something, sit there!

Like Paul it is best to remember all we do is subject to the divine will and passes through the wisdom of God whether it is truly worthy and right. Even then, the Lord in His love, will adapt and adjust what we do for a better outcome than we can imagine.

Do well.
Then, please.

JUST SIT THERE.

First reading
Let no one deceive himself.
If anyone among you considers himself wise in this age,
let him become a fool, so as to become wise.

So let no one boast about human beings, for everything belongs to you,
Paul or Apollos or Cephas,
or the world or life or death,
or the present or the future:
all belong to you, and you to Christ, and Christ to God.

Responsorial Psalm
To the Lord belongs the earth and all that fills it.

Alleluia Verse
Come after me, says the Lord,
and I will make you fishers of men.

Gospel Portion
Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing,
but at your command I will lower the nets.

When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish and their nets were tearing.

For astonishment at the catch of fish they had made seized him and all those with him, and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon. Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.” When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed him.

Do well.
Then, please.

JUST SIT THERE.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
