Stations of the Resurrection (Via Lucis) at St Chrysostom’s 2015
We are following the Easter story through Eastertide in a Way of Light (Via Lucis). Each Sunday in Eastertide we offer a stopping place – a Station of the Resurrection (based on those found in the Church of England’s Common Worship), for personal prayer and reflection.
5. Jesus appears at the Lakeside (John 21: 9-13)
When they had gone ashore, they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, ‘Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.’ So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three of them; and though there were so many, the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, ‘Come and have breakfast.’ Now none of the disciples dared to ask him, ‘Who are you?’ because they knew it was the Lord. Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.
We praise you and we bless you,
our risen Lord Jesus, King of glory,
for at the lakeside you showed concern
for the daily needs of your disciples.
As you guided them to fill their nets with fish,
so guide all who are hungry till their hunger is satisfied in you.
To you, Lord Jesus, sharing with us the food of faith,
be honour and glory, now and for ever.
