Fishing in the nude…

June 14, 2013

The Apostles had been fishing all night and had caught nothing when suddenly, Christ, who is standing on the shoreline (although they do not recognise Him) encourages them to throw their nets over once more… and they catch so much that they have to call other boats to come and help them…

Considering that the Israelites were not known to be sea people, this already suggests that St Peter was rougher, tougher and braver than most…

It is while fishing that St Peter first met Christ, and it is while fishing that St Peter again meets Christ after His Resurrection.

A beautiful reflection on reunions and renewals…. and why St Peter’s decision to put on clothes before jumping in the water and swimming to Christ is such a powerful spiritual statement that goes all the way back to Genesis…
