Today's reading is from the Holy Gospel according to St. Luke. (5:1-11)
If we ignore the Christian struggle which is to be quiet, we will be left exhausted, discouraged, and with empty nets. The struggle is real. The toiling and intense laboring is real. We have to keep going. We have to take care of our business. But if we fall short, repent, start over, and come to confession. Ask the Lord for His strength, for His forgiveness, for His help. Pray for God’s guidance. Ask yourself what is most pleasing to God. Watch what kind of peace and happiness comes from this.
