Below is a reflection on the Pope’s Prayer Intention for August 2020 – The Maritime World: We pray for all those who work and live from the sea, among them sailors, fishermen and their families.
The beauty of the sunrise took my breath away. A tall fishing vessel glided over the horizon as it approached the shore. A little while later it yielded up its harvest of 153 beautiful fish. Despite the catch, the nets were not broken. (John 21:11) Fishermen had breakfast on the seashore and gave thanks for the labor of the night.
