Here are some of the themes in the readings for the 5th Sunday of the Year.

1st Reading – Isaiah 6:1-2a,3-8

  • The Seraphim cry out “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts!” as they worship the Lord upon the throne of heaven.
  • When asked who will go, the prophet cries out, “Here I am, send me!”

Psalm – 138:1-5,7-8

  • “In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.”
  • We praise and thank God who responds to us in kindness and truth.

2nd Reading – 1st Corinthians 15:1-11

  • Paul hands on to the people what he has received, and he recounts the basic teaching about Jesus.
  • Paul recognizes that he also has been called by God to preach the Good News.

Gospel – Luke 5:1-11

  • Jesus gets into the boat of Simon and tells him to go back out into the water and lower his nets.
  • After they caught a massive amount of fish, Peter tells Jesus to depart. The Lord, however, invites those present to cast off fear and follow him.
