a short distance from the shore

“Getting into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, he asked him to put out a short distance from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat.” (LK 5: 3)

It happens sometimes, that we think that Our Lord separated from us when we do not feel Him close. When He does it, it could be because He wanted our attention, He wanted to show us an important lesson, maybe even invite us to a totally different place-like “I will make you fishers of men.” And even He is separated, it is just “a short distance from the shore.”

“Come after me, says the Lord, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Gospel Acclamation)
