“Come after me and I will make you fishers of men.”
Just like the first Apostles, they were called in their daily work, doing ordinary work: open, down-to-earth people, adaptable, used to hard work, The timing as just right for them, their hearts were open at the perfect time. They responded without thinking of consequences, they left their work, no calculations, no thinking twice.
From then on, Christ became the center of their lives. We, in the same manner, may be called in the middle of whatever/ wherever we are: businessmen , housewives, students, teachers etc. And be fishers of men. He will mold us, erase our doubts, give us the tools, wisdom and knowledge,
Once we take on his challenge, He becomes the center the everything we do. We hold on to His promises in our daily chores. Let us remind ourselves through our daily prayer, Mass and Rosary of how deep our relationship can be with Jesus and Mary.
