Jesus has been waiting for his disciples....
This is one of my favorite Gospel stories. Peter went out fishing; others go with him and they toil all night and catch nothing. Then Jesus comes; they obey Him and their nets are full. Peter cannot wait to get to Jesus so he gets out of the boat. Jesus has breakfast ready for them and just adds some of the fish they have caught.
Now, what is the truth behind this story. Again, Jesus comes when they are tired and discouraged for they have worked hard and have not caught a single fish. With Jesus come the fish and the net is overflowing. Then we see that Jesus has prepared a meal for them.
Apply that story to your own life and you will find the truth that those Jewish Christians saw and used in their liturgies.
