First Week of Ordinary Time

1 Samuel 1:1-8; Psalm 116:12-19; Mark 1:14-20

Into deeper levels

John the Baptist called people to repent and turn back to God. Back in his home territory of Galilee, Jesus complements the message adding “Believe the Good News.” As he walks along the lake shore Jesus comes across dedicated men labouring in the family fishing business. He calls the two pairs of brothers to follow him. Jesus blesses their livelihood as fishermen, and invites them to consider a completely new dimension: to be fishers of people. His mission begun, Jesus invites disciples. What might the deeper level be that Jesus calls you to in your daily occupation?
