“Too often, we have less patience and faith before the challenges and disappointments of our lives than Peter did.  Too often, we convince ourselves that it is pointless to persist in obeying Christ as best we can because our nets apparently remain empty of the blessings that we want for ourselves, our loved ones, and our world…Our calling, like that of Peter and the first disciples, is simply to obey Christ’s command to follow Him. “
(Fr Philip LeMasters, ‘Eastern Christian Insights’)
