GOOD NEltrS r Corinthians 15:1-11 or 1$:l-8, rr / Luke 5:a-a7My husband and I joke that the sweetest three words in the English language ,.1 aren,t love you," but "You were right." We relish hearing them, but they're often hard to say, esPecially when you're ceftain you were the one who had it right, however minute "it" was. lt's tough to admit you're wrong and that you don't have allthe answers. Simon Peter faced this dilemma in the Gospel. He had followed Jesus' command to lower the nets, but you can almost hear the exasperationsarcasm, even-dripping from his voice: "We have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets'" I can't exactly blame him. He was exhausted, and he was an experienced fisherman-now someone trained as a carpenter is telling him how to do his job? I imagine he expected to pull up an empty net and shake his head knowingly at Jesus. But he ends up having to admit that Jesus was right as the nets Practically tear open from the weight of the fish. His self-confidence melts, and Simon sees himself as nothing but a sinful man. He joins the ranks of Isaiah (in the first reading) and Saint Paul (in the second) in claiming he is unworthy to draw near lsaiah 5:1-2a, 3-8 /

to and serve the Lord. But in this case again, Jesus turns outto be right. He specifically chooses sinful, broken people as his followers. It's baffling, but it's true. Simon was Unworthy and we are unwofthy, but as Saint Paul reminds US, "His grace to me has not been ineffective." God's grace fills us with what is lacking, and we are then capable of believing, following, and J an e I E s ke r s u n dayb u lleti n @ li g u o r i. o r g serving the Lord.

obligation to do this, and always be very careful about confronting strangers about anything. As far as dress for Mass, this is a problem in many parishes. I wouldn't say anything to the person wearing the disrespectful clothing. Instead, ask your pastor whether your parish or diocese has a dress code. If they do, ask him why it's not being enforced. If there is no dress code, ask him if you can form a committee to

When I was young, I went to a baseball game with my parents. While we were in line, a man cursed usingJesus' name. My mother said, "Oh, I don't thinkJesus is playing today." She made her point, but I doubt she changed his future behavior. I don't thinkwe're oblipted to point out that someone is using God's name in vain. Many times in public I hear someone cursing. Depending on the situation, I might say something simple like, 'You know, there are children
