092715.cfm “I’m going fishing,” is my husband’s favorite verse from Scripture. Mike loves the open lake, sun on the face, water glistening, waves lapping against the boat and casting out his line. Even when the catch is scant, it’s always a good break from the stresses of the day. In this Sunday’s Gospel, Peter declares, “I’m going fishing.” No doubt, Peter had an over-the-top stress-filled week, including the denying and abandoning of his Master. Maybe, just maybe, getting back to his livelihood—a little normalcy—could relieve his stress—and shame. Perhaps he could catch a few fish and gain a little control over his life. Yet Peter and the other disciples come up empty.
