How often have you invited someone to follow Christ at your church? Too often, I have neglected this obligation. The risen Christ appeared visibly few times so each appearance carries huge importance. Today’s gospel portrays 1 such experience in which Christ tells his disciples to go fishing symbolizing our drawing people to Christ. Peter and the other professional fishermen caught nothing all night, but when following Christ’s suggestion, they fill their nets. The meaning for us? Follow Christ’s urging: live his life of love, and people will follow your invitation to come to Christ. Peter then tells Christ 3 times that he loves him. Yes, that is the secret: to love Christ so fully in others that your life and invitation will draw your beloved to the Lord
