Friends of the Rosary,

For a third time, the Risen Jesus revealed himself to a large group of Apostles after being raised from the dead (Jn 21:1-14).

The passage occurred in the Sea of Tiberias (Sea of Galilee). It was before the arrival of the Holy Spirit in Pentecost.

There were Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, Zebedee’s sons (James and John), and two others of his disciples.

The Apostles had returned to their old fishing job.

Having fished all night and caught nothing, they returned to shore early in the morning.

Jesus was standing on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
Jesus said to them, “Children, have you caught anything to eat?”

When they disappointedly replied, “No,” He told them, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some”.

Without further comment, they threw their net out and caught 153 large fish, collectively far too many and too heavy a catch for them to haul onboard the boat.

John, intuitively recalling Jesus’ previous miraculous catch of fish, recognized that it was Jesus standing on the shore and he said to Simon Peter, “It is the Lord”.

When Jesus said, “Bring some of the fish you have just now caught,” Simon Peter went and dragged the remainder of the untorn net out of the water and retrieved some fish from it.

Jesus then said, “Come have breakfast” and he “took the bread and gave it to them and did the same with the fish”.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
