Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jubilee Year of Mercy
February 7, 2016
Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
During this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis calls us to
share with everyone the tender compassion of God that we
ourselves have experienced. In today’s Gospel, Luke uses a
special Greek word conveying just such tenderness. In the other
Gospels, Jesus calls the disciples to be “fishers,” haleis, the
same word that means catching fish with hooks or nets, to be
killed and eaten. But Luke uses zogron, from zoe or “life,”
meaning “catch or gather people alive,” as
animal lovers capture without harming,
rescue from “the wild” for a better life, and
protect in aquarium or zoo, tenderly cared
for by professionals committed to the
creatures’ well-being. So in Luke’s vision—
and Pope Francis’ as well—we who have
been “caught alive” by God’s mercy
ourselves are to become “missionaries of
mercy” during this Jubilee Year of Mercy,
rescuing fellow sinners from danger and
gathering them into Jesus’ community to enjoy
fullness of life.

Parish School and in our Faith

in Operation Rice Bowl and we invite
and encourage all our parish families to
commit to some participation in
Operation Rice Bowl in their homes with
their families and friends. Take a Rice
Bowl this weekend and bring it back
with your donation on Easter Sunday

responds, “Send me!” (Isaiah 6:1-2a, 3-8)
Psalm — In the sight of the angels I will sing
your praises, Lord (Psalm 138).
Second Reading — Paul reminds us of the

Simon and his partners leave all to follow Jesus
(Luke 5:1-11).
