Reflection July 30 th – Matthew 13 47-53
Today we hear of the net thrown into the sea that gathers in fish of every kind. The story reminds us that the net is our church, we are the fishermen, and we need to invite everyone into our church, the good and the bad. It is not our job to judge who is worthy and who is not. Years ago, when I decided to change my life and start seriously living for God, if I was judged to see if I was worthy, I’m not sure I would have been allowed to come in. It was the beautiful ministry of Cursillo that was my net. It gathered me up, invited me in without judging me, and led me to a close encounter with Christ, which changed my life! I love the sport of fishing because I never know what I am gong to catch. The same is true of “fishing for men” because there too, we never know what we are going to catch. Let us always remember that it is our job to catch them and bring them in, and let’s leave the sorting out to Jesus!
