Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, Gospel & Homily

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Luke (5:1-11)

At that time, when the multitude pressed upon Jesus to hear the word of God, He stood by the lake of Genesareth. And He saw two ships standing by the lake; but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets; and going up into one of the ships that was Simon's, He desired him to draw back a little from the land: and sitting He taught the multitudes out of the ship. Now when He had ceased to speak, He said to Simon: Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon, answering, said to Him: Master, we have laboured all the night, and have taken nothing, but at Thy word I will let down the net. And when they had done this, they enclosed a very great multitude of fishes; and their net broke: and they beckoned to their partners that were in the other ship, that they should come and help them; and they came, and filled both the ships, so that they were almost sinking. Which when Simon Peter saw, he fell down at Jesus's knees, saying: Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he was wholly astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of fishes which they had taken: and so were also James and John the Sons of Zebedee, who were Simon's partners. And Jesus saith to Simon: Fear not, from henceforth thou shalt catch men. And having brought their ships to land, leaving all things they followed him.


Sequentia sancti Evangelii secúndum Lucam (5:1-11)

In illo témpore: Cum turbæ irrúerent in Jesum, ut audírent verbum Dei, et ipse stabat secus stagnum Genésareth. Et vidit duas naves stantes secus stagnum: piscatóres autem descénderant et lavábant rétia. Ascéndens autem in unam navim, quæ erat Simónis, rogávit eum a terra redúcere pusíllum. Et sedens docébat de navícula turbas. Ut cessávit autem loqui, dixit ad Simónem: Duc in altum, et laxáte rétia vestra in captúram. Et respóndens Simon dixit illi: Præcéptor, per totam noctem laborántes, nihil cépimus: in verbo autem tuo laxábo rete. Et cum hoc fecíssent, conclusérunt píscium multitúdinem copiósam: rumpebátur autem rete eórum. Et annuérunt sóciis, qui erant in ália navi, ut venírent et adjuvárent eos. Et venérunt, et implevérunt ambas navículas, ita ut pene mergeréntur. Quod cum vidéret Simon Petrus, prócidit ad génua Jesu, dicens: Exi a me, quia homo peccátor sum, Dómine. Stupor enim circumdéderat eum et omnes qui cum illo erant, in captúra píscium quam céperant: simíliter autem Jacóbum et Joánnem, fílios Zebedæi, qui erant sócii Simónis. Et ait ad Simónem Jesus: Noli timére: ex hoc jam hómines eris cápiens. Et subdúctis ad terram návibus, relíctis ómnibus, secúti sunt eum.


Κλῆσις τῶν πρώτων μαθητῶν

ΕΓΕΝΕΤΟ δὲ ἐν τῷ τὸν ὄχλον ἐπικεῖσθαι αὐτῷ τοῦ ἀκούειν τὸν λόγον τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ αὐτὸς ἦν ἑστὼς παρὰ τὴν λίμνην Γεννησαρέτ, 2 καὶ εἶδε δύο πλοῖα ἑστῶτα παρὰ τὴν λίμνην· οἱ δὲ ἁλιεῖς ἀποβάντες ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν ἀπέπλυναν τὰ δίκτυα. 3 ἐμβὰς δὲ εἰς ἓν τῶν πλοίων, ὃ ἦν τοῦ Σίμωνος, ἠρώτησεν αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἐπαναγαγεῖν ὀλίγον· καὶ καθίσας ἐδίδασκεν ἐκ τοῦ πλοίου τοὺς ὄχλους. 4 ὡς δὲ ἐπαύσατο λαλῶν, εἶπε πρὸς τὸν Σίμωνα· ἐπανάγαγε εἰς τὸ βάθος καὶ χαλάσατε τὰ δίκτυα ὑμῶν εἰς ἄγραν. 5 καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ Σίμων εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ἐπιστάτα, δι᾿ ὅλης τῆς νυκτὸς κοπιάσαντες οὐδὲν ἐλάβομεν· ἐπὶ δὲ τῷ ρήματί σου χαλάσω τὸ δίκτυον. 6 καὶ τοῦτο ποιήσαντες συνέκλεισαν πλῆθος ἰχθύων πολύ· διερρήγνυτο δὲ τὸ δίκτυον αὐτῶν. 7 καὶ κατένευσαν τοῖς μετόχοις τοῖς ἐν τῷ ἑτέρῳ πλοίῳ τοῦ ἐλθόντας συλλαβέσθαι αὐτοῖς· καὶ ἦλθον καὶ ἔπλησαν ἀμφότερα τὰ πλοῖα, ὥστε βυθίζεσθαι αὐτά. 8 ἰδὼν δὲ Σίμων Πέτρος προσέπεσε τοῖς γόνασιν ᾿Ιησοῦ λέγων· ἔξελθε ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ, ὅτι ἀνὴρ ἁμαρτωλός εἰμι, Κύριε· 9 θάμβος γὰρ περιέσχεν αὐτὸν καὶ πάντας τοὺς σὺν αὐτῷ ἐπὶ τῇ ἄγρᾳ τῶν ἰχθύων ᾗ συνέλαβον, 10 ὁμοίως δὲ καὶ ᾿Ιάκωβον καὶ ᾿Ιωάννην, υἱοὺς Ζεβεδαίου, οἳ ἦσαν κοινωνοὶ τῷ Σίμωνι. καὶ εἶπε πρὸς τὸν Σίμωνα ὁ ᾿Ιησοῦς· μὴ φοβοῦ· ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν ἀνθρώπους ἔσῃ ζωγρῶν.   11 καὶ καταγαγόντες τὰ πλοῖα ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, ἀφέντες ἅπαντα ἠκολούθησαν αὐτῷ.

Lesson vii
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum LucamThe Lesson is taken from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Chap. 5, 1-11
In illo témpore : Cum turbæ irrúerent in Jesum, ut audírent verbum Dei, et ipse stabat secus stagnum Genésareth.  Et réliqua.
At that time : As the people pressed upon Jesus, to hear the Word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret.  And so on, and that which followeth.
Homilía sancti Ambrósii EpíscopiA Homily by St. Ambrose the Bishop
Liber 4 in Lucæ cap. 5, prope finem libri
Ubi Dóminus multis impartívit vária génera sanitátum, nec témpore, nec loco pótuit ab stúdio sanándi turba cohibéri.  Vesper incúbuit sequebántur : stagnum occúrrit, urgébant : et ídeo ascéndit in Petri navim.  Hæc est illa navis, quæ adhuc secúndum Matthæum flúctuat, secúndum Lucam replétur píscibus : ut et princípia Ecclésiæ fluctuántis, et posterióra exuberántis agnóscas.  Pisces enim sunt, qui hanc enávigant vitam.  Ibi adhuc discípulis Christus dormit, hic præcipit ; dormit enim tépidis, perféctis vígilat.
When the Lord wrought so many works of healing, neither time nor place could restrain the people from seeking health.  Evening came, and they still followed him ; he went down to the lake, and they still pressed upon him ; for which reason he entered into Peter's ship.  This is that ship, which spiritually up to this very hour, according to the expression of Matthew, is buffeted by tempests ; but still, according to Luke, is filled with fishes.  By all this is signified that for a while things are troublous for the Church, but afterwards fruitful.  And the fishes are those Christians which are as yet in the troublous waters of human life.  In this ship also spiritually doth Christ, for the sake of his disciples, still sleep, and still command, for he sleepeth for the lukewarm, and watcheth for the perfect.
V.  Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R.  Deo grátias.
V.  But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R.  Thanks be to God.
R.  Peccávi super númerum arénæ maris, et multiplicáta sunt peccáta mea : et non sum dignus vidére altitúdinem cæli præ multitúdine iniquitátis meæ : quóniam irritávi iram tuam, * Et malum coram te feci.V.  Quóniam iniquitátem meam ego cognósco : et delíctum meum contra me est semper, quia tibi soli peccávi.
R.  Et malum coram te feci.
R.  I have sinned above the number of the sands of the sea ; yea, I am not worthy to look up toward heaven because of the  multitude of mine iniquities ; against thee only have I sinned ;  *   And done this evil in thy sight.V.  I acknowledge my faults, and my sin is ever before me ; against thee only have I sinned.
R.  And done this evil in thy sight.

V.  Jube domne, (Dómine) benedícere.
V.  Vouchsafe, Reverend Father (O Lord), thy blessing.
Benedíctio 8: Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum.
R.  Amen.
Benediction 8: May help divine be with us all, for ever abiding.
R.  Amen.
Lesson viii
Non turbátur hæc navis, in qua prudéntia návigat, abest perfídia, fides aspírat.  Quemádmodum enim turbári póterat, cui præerat is, in quo Ecclésiæ firmaméntum est?  Illic ergo turbátio, ubi módica fides ; hic secúritas, ubi perfécta diléctio.  Et si áliis imperátur ut laxent rétia sua, soli tamen Petro dícitur : Duc in altum ; hoc est, in profúndum disputatiónum.  Quid enim tam altum, quam altitúdinem divitiárum vidére, scire Dei Fílium, et professiónem divínæ generatiónis assúmere?  Quam licet mens non queat humána plene ratiónis investigatióne comprehéndere, fídei tamen plenitúdo compléctitur.
No fear, then, for the ship where wisdom steereth, where false teaching is not known, where faith swelleth the sails.  How shall she be troubled, whose Lord is himself the Church's sure Foundation?  It is where faith is weak that there is fear ; where love is perfect, there is safety.  To many it is commanded to loose their nets, but to Peter also is said : Launch out into the deep : which may be interpreted as the depths of doctrine.  What indeed is there so deep, as to gaze upon the depth of all riches, to recognize the Son of God, and to take up the confession of his divine generation?  This is a thing which the mind is not able to grasp by the searchings of man's reason, but which is embraced by a hearty faith.
V.  Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R.  Deo grátias.
V.  But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R.  Thanks be to God.
R.  Duo Séraphim clamábant alter ad álterum : *Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth : * Plena est omnis terra glória ejus.V.  Tres sunt qui testimónium dant in cælo : Pater, Verbum, et Spíritus Sanctus : et hi tres unum sunt.
R.  Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.V.  Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto.
R.  Plena est omnis terra glória ejus.
R.  The two Seraphim did cry the One to the Other : * Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God of Hosts : * The whole earth is full of his glory.V.  For there are Three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost : and these Three are One.
R.  Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God of Hosts.V.  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R.  The whole earth is full of his glory.

V.  Jube domne, (Dómine) benedícere.
V.  Vouchsafe, Reverend Father (O Lord), thy blessing.
Benedíctio 9: Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum.
R.  Amen.
Benediction 9: May the King of Angels give us fellowship with all the citizens of heaven.
R.  Amen.
Lesson ix
Nam, etsi non licet mihi scire quemádmodum natus sit, non licéte tamen nescíre quod natus sit.  Sériem generatiónis ignóro ; sed auctórem generatiónis agnósco.  Non interfúimus cum ex Patre Dei Fílius nascerétur ; sed interfúimus cum a Patre Dei Fílius dicerétur.  Si Deo non crédimus, cui credémus?  Omnia enim quæ crédimus, vel visu crédimus, vel audítu : visus sæpe fállitur, audítus in fide est.
For, albeit, it is not given unto me to know how the Son of God was born, yet of the fact that he was begotten, I may not be ignorant.  What the order of his generation was, I know not, but the Source of his generation, I do acknowledge.  None hath beheld the Begetting of the Son of God by the Father, but the Church hath stood by to hear the Father testify that this is his beloved Son.  If we believe not God, whom shall we believe?  For whatsoever we believe cometh either by sight or hearing ; sight is oftentimes deceived, but faith cometh by hearing.
V.  Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R.  Deo grátias.
V.  But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R.  Thanks be to God.
