says to Catalina: “Observe
My daughter every morning, even when it is still dark, the farmer walks
down the path that takes him to his land.
His path is well-worn from so much coming and going on the same
place. Even his animals come
and go alone to the field. His
schedule is routine...The case of the fisherman is very different.
In the sea there are no roads or paths, new ways will always be
taken. Waves are never the
same. Every day the wind
blows in a different way and a new way has to be invented.
Every morning the fisherman stands in front of the sea and wonders:
“God, and now, where should I go? Where are the fish today?
Therefore the fisherman repeats daily with psalmist:
“Show me thy ways, O Lord. Teach me thy paths”
(Psalms 25, 4)
