Jesus with the "Fishers of Men", Second Sunday of Lent






Is Jesus asking you to change the position of your nets?
You too might catch something rewarding.

It really is worth enlarging this one, Micki, as you advise (but then I always think it is): the detail is staggering. It reminds me of a huge fishing net kept in Ely Cathedral, where visitors tie on tags of wool, to show themselves as "caught in Jesus' net". The net is swamped with multi-coloured bits of wool.
Best Regards, Lynneda

The comment with the beautiful picture gives me pause. I have always been attracted to the Carmelite spirituality but now have attended two Third Order Dominican meetings (impossible for me to attend the
Carmelite meetings--too far away). So this is altering my previous way of going. Help me discern, Oh Jesus.
