"It is the Lord!"

John 21
[5] Jesus said to them, "Children, have you any fish?" They answered him, "No." [6] He said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some." So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, for the quantity of fish. [7] That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his clothes, for he was stripped for work, and sprang into the sea. [8] But the other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, but about a hundred yards off.


Lord, graciously grant that, in union with the successor of Peter the fisherman our Holy Father Benedict, we may cast a wide net of charity and truth and so catch a multitude of souls for your Church that You may save all mankind.
