"1st Sunday of Luke: "The Calling of the First Disciples" - Meeting with Catechists in Jinja.
" CAST YOUR NETS FOR A CATCH"(Luke 5:4)
"FROM NOW ON WARDS YOU WILL BE CATCHING MEN"(Luke 5:10).
Today His Grace met with the Catechists of Eastern Region at Holy Resurrection Cathedral Jinja. He encouraged them and gave them words of advise in their service as cathechists in their big responsibility of mobilizing, teaching cathechumens, helping priests in Parishes & communities and even leading faithful in Prayer in communities or in parishes during the absence of the Priest.
Also in his Message he put emphasis on the Word of the Lord from today's Gospel, telling the Disciples to Cast their nets even if for long they had been trying yet not catching.
His Grace called on the Catechists and Orthodox preachers & teachers of the faith, that just like Peter obeyed and said " Because you say so, I will let down the nets.” (Luke 5: 5) in the same way they should focus with FAITH & OBEDIENCE to the word of the Lord, and Cast their Nets, even if the situation may seem difficult, even if the people may seem too busy taken with other matters of this worldly life, or seem to have lost their hope in the midist of the many problems of life, "IN WHICH EVER SITUATION WE OR THE PEOPLE MAY BE, WE SHOULD STILL DARE TO CAST OUR NETS, AND LET THE WORD OF GOD TO ACT" said his Grace. That this is the only way the Lord, according to his word, can make us Catchers of Men.(Luke 5:10)"
