What Is My Fishing Practice? Am I Faithful to My Spiritual Practice?

Sisters Pat and Judy hiking back from their fishing trip in the Sierras.

 

This morning (the Feast of St. Andrew) during our morning prayer, Sister Millie reflected on the Gospel reading. She talked about those who fish, and how sensitive they become to the movement of the water – the movement of the fish – the movement of the boat. Perhaps that helps create in them a sensitivity to the Spirit. Could that be why they were able to drop their nets and follow so suddenly (seemingly) and completely. They may have been predisposed by their practice.

What is my practice? Am I as attentive to my “practice” as these fishermen were?

[Jesus] said to them,
“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of people.”
At once they left their nets and followed him.

– Matthew 4:19-20

  1. Love that reflection on the sensitivity of the fisherpeople! thank you!
    No, I don’t think I’m that sensitive to every ripple in the water! But I’m working at it
