In Sunday’s Gospel we have the story of the miraculous catch of fish. The disciples has worked all night but had caught nothing. After Jesus finished preaching from the boat he asked Peter to put out into deep water and pay out the nets for a catch. They netted such a large number of fish that the nets were tearing. They asked the companion boats to come to their assistance and they did.

Peter was deeply moved by what had happened. He saw Jesus at work. He concluded that he had powers beyond any human person. This was the action of someone who had exercised the power of God. He fell at the feet of Jesus and said, "Leave me, Lord; I am a sinful man." Confronted with the calm power of Jesus, Peter came to realise who he was. He was unworthy to be in the presence of Jesus. It is also good for us to place ourselves in the presence of Jesus. It is also good for us to place ourselves in the presence of Jesus to discover who we really are. There we will find out whether our living and lifestyle is true or false. Jesus is the measure of all we can be. He was the image of God. His life was marked by holiness and loving commitment to his Fa-ther. We were also created in the image of God. The question for us is: where are we in relation to Jesus, the perfect image of God?
