Homilies: 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) as preached during the 5pm Sunday Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings were Isaiah 6:1-8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Luke 5:1-11.

“Confronted with the Presence of the Divine in Jesus, Simon owns his unworthiness and sinfulness. Jesus, however, invites Simon to ‘be not afraid’, and to become a fisher of people. We, too, are invited by Jesus to not focus on our unworthiness, but to step out in mission fearlessly because we have been chosen in love by God.”
