He has blessed the sea-road. Distress has ended, darkness is dispelled. gloom is gone. Those who have walked in darkness have seen a great light.

Matthew 4: 12-23

(Roman, Revised Common & Episcopal Lectionaries)

Two brothers, Simon Peter and Andrew, were casting their nets into the sea.

Jesus said to the fishermen,

“Come after me, and I will make you Fishers of Men.”

They dropped their nets, and followed Him.
