Introduction: Jesus calls the fishermen, Simon and Andrew, James and John, to be his disciples.
A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark 1:14-20
(Sign of Cross on forehead, lips, heart)
After John was arrested, Jesus went to Galilee and told the good news that comes from God. He said, “The time has come! God’s kingdom will soon be here. Turn back to God and believe the good news!” As Jesus was walking along the shores of Lake Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew. They were fishermen and were casting their nets into the lake. Jesus said to them, “Come with me! I will teach you how to bring in people instead of fish.” Right then the two brothers dropped their nets and went with him. Jesus walked on and soon saw James and John, the sons of Zebedee. They were in a boat, mending their nets. At once Jesus asked them to come with him. They left their father in the boat with the hired workers and went with him.
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
