Friday in the Octave of Easter: "Cast the net"

It is the Lord!

-- John 21, 1-14

In the office of the Apostles there is one aspect that cannot be transmitted: to be the chosen witnesses of the Lord's resurrection and so the foundation stones of the Church. But their office also has a permanent aspect. Christ promised to remain with them always. The divine mission entrusted by Jesus to them "will continue to the end of time, since the Gospel they handed on is the lasting source of all life for the Church ..."

-- CCC 860
