Acts 4:1-12; Psalm 117; John 21:1-14
Fr. Dan Evbotokhai
The Basic theme today is salvation. In first reading we are presented with the opposition and arrest of Peter and John. Peter’s uncommon boldness is a serious lesson for us. This boldness was an evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit. Thus, Peter said salvation is only in the name of Jesus(Acts4:12).
Today’s gospel tells of Jesus appearance by the Sea of Tiberias. Wherein by instruction Peter hauled the net full of large fish a symbol of Peter bringing people to the harbour of salvation! Lord, have mercy and save us.
An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
