3rd Sunday of Easter - C


Light and Darkness

While the disciples labored and caught no fish, it was night.

Jesus came to them when “it was already dawn.”

The Gospel writer seemingly wants to draw our attention to this difference in the setting of the event.

Where the Risen Christ is present, there is light.

And the success of the catch of fish at his command recalls what Jesus had said to the disciples in John 15:5, “without me you can do nothing.” [1]
