In the Gospel at Mass today we hear Our Lord speak those famous words to Saint Peter, “Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch” (Luke 5:4). For Peter, these words were a beginning. Peter exhibited initial trust by acceding to Jesus’ request. Without this initial trust Peter would have never have accomplished the work God placed before him. For this reason we should be quick to heed the promptings the Holy Spirit places on our hearts. They set us on a sure path to heaven!
