FATHER KEN’S NOTE
2
“The Fisherman”
Once a poor fisherman was relaxing on the beach,
under the shadow of a tree smoking a cigar.
Suddenly a rich businessman passing by approached
him and enquired as to why he was sitting under a
tree smoking and not working. To this the poor
fisherman replied that he had caught enough fish for
the day.
Hearing this the rich man got angry and said: Why
don’t you catch more fish instead of sitting on the
beach - relaxing and smoking and wasting your time?
The Fisherman asked: What would I do by catching more fish?
The Businessman said: If you could catch more fish, you could sell them and earn more money,
and buy a bigger boat.
The Fisherman replied: What would I do then?
The Businessman said: You could go fishing in deep waters and catch even more fish and make
even more money.
The Fisherman replied: What would I do then?
The Businessman said: You could buy many boats and employ many people to work for you and
earn even more money.
The Fisherman replied: What would I do then?
The Businessman said: You could become a rich businessman like me.
The Fisherman replied: What would I do then?
The Businessman said: You could then enjoy your life more, relax - sit on the beach and smoke
cigars.
The Fisherman replied: But -- that's what I am doing now!
Moral – You don’t need to wait for tomorrow to be happy and enjoy your life. You don’t even
need to be more rich, more powerful to enjoy life. LIFE is at this moment, enjoy it fully.

Eucharistic Adoration - St. Margaret Mary Church is hosting Exposition and Adoration of the
Blessed Sacrament in the Church, every Thursday following the 8:00 a.m. Mass until 12 noon. This is
a wonderful opportunity to come and cast our cares before the Lord, to find the rest that Jesus desires
for us, to listen to God’s voice, and to be renewed and transformed by God’s love as we pray for our
brothers and sisters in Christ. Please consider stopping in for a few moments of quiet prayer.
Eucharistic Adoration also takes place Wednesdays from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. at Mount Saint Peter and at
St. Mary of Czestochowa from 11:00 a.m.-12 noon on the first Friday of each Month.
