Isaiah 6:1-2a,3-8; Psalm 138; 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Luke 5:1-11

All three readings today speak of God’s call. In the first reading, Isaiah is called to be a prophet, even though he sees himself as a “man of unclean lips, living among a people of unclean lips”; in the second reading, Paul recalls his own call to be an apostle, even though he sees himself as “the least of the apostles, not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God”; and in the Gospel we hear of Simon Peter’s call to be a fisher of men, even though he describes himself as “a sinful man.” Apparently our God does not call saints to do his work; God calls whom he will, and then creates saints as they rise to the occasion.

How is God forming you to be worthy of your calling?
