Text Box: Sunday Scripture
           Our unworthiness to serve God is overcome by God's grace, and by our willingness to answer his call.  Many of God's prophets and the most trusted disciples of Jesus considered themselves unworthy to be chosen to do God's work. So, too, our failures loom in front of us as we wonder why God has called us. However, it is not our worthiness that matters, but God's grace and mercy and our willingness to say yes to him.
           In today's first reading, Isaiah has a vision in which his mouth is purified by an angel touching his lips with a burning ember. In the second reading, Paul calls himself the least of the Apostles, but effective due to God's grace. The Gospel tells of Jesus calling Peter and others to be his disciples, telling them they will be catching men instead of fish.
