Reading 3, Acts 10: 9-16 : Peter’s vision of the church.



9The next day, as they were on their journey and coming near the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour.
10And he became hungry and desired something to eat; but while they were preparing it, he fell into a trance
11and saw the heaven opened, and something descending, like a great sheet, let down by four corners upon the earth.
12In it were all kinds of animals and reptiles and birds of the air.
13And there came a voice to him, "Rise, Peter; kill and eat."
14But Peter said, "No, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean."
15And the voice came to him again a second time, "What God has cleansed, you must not call common."
16This happened three times, and the thing was taken up at once to heaven.


Gospel, Lk 5: 1-11 : From now on you will be catching people.

 

1 While the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennes'aret.
2 And he saw two boats by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets.
3 Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
4 And when he had ceased speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch."
5 And Simon answered, "Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets."
6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a great shoal of fish; and as their nets were breaking,
7 they beckoned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord."
9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the catch of fish which they had taken;
10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zeb'edee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching men."
11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.
