The sermon by Father Tony – we call it a “Homily” in the Catholic Church – was very good this Sunday (usually is). He related a story about a very rich businessman and a poor fisherman.

The businessman struck up a friendly conversation the fisherman, who was relaxing beside his old fishing boat after catching all the fish he needed.

Businessman: You caught a nice bunch of fish there.
Fisherman: Yes, I did. Thanks. The fishing was excellent today, and I could have caught many more.

Businessman: Why didn’t you. If you had caught more fish, you could have sold them in town and made a lot of money.

Fisherman: What would I have done with the money?
Businessman: With the extra money, you could have bought extra nets, caught more fish, and made even more money.

Fisherman: What would I have done with the money?
Businessman: Well, with extra money you could have bought a larger boat, caught even more fish, and one day could afford have an entire fleet of fishing boats. You could get rich, like me.

Fisherman: Why would I want to do that?
Businessman: Well you could lay back, relax, and enjoy life.

Fisherman: What do you think I’m doing now?????
