Reflection:

Today’s Gospel reading brings Luke’s 5th chapter to a close. It is a passage with some perplexing parables, but can be better understood if we remember that Chapter 5 begins with the call of the first disciples (1-11). The call of Simon Peter, and of Zebedee’s sons, James and John, is achieved through the convincing great catch of fish, in spite of the fact that these professional fishermen had already called their efforts a failure.

They tried to prevent Him from leaving them.  But He said to them, "To the other towns also I must proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God because for this purpose I have been sent."

The Gospel today talks about four different events;  the cure of Peter’s mother-in-law, the cure of many sick people,  the prayer of Jesus in a deserted place, and His insistence on the focus of His mission.
