DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Knowing Jesus: In today’s Gospel, Jesus walked on water and calmed the stormy sea as He got into His disciples’ boat. They were dumbfounded by what they witnessed. Do we know Jesus as our Lord and Saviour personally, so as to be able to trust Him wholeheartedly in the storms of our lives? How have we experienced His miracles, daily?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
After saying goodbye to the crowd Jesus went off into the hills to pray. When evening came, the boat was far out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. He could see that they were hard pressed in their rowing, for the wind was against them; and about the fourth watch of the night he came towards them, walking on the sea. He was going to pass them by, but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost and cried out; for they had all seen him and were terrified. But at once he spoke to them and said, ‘Courage! It’s me! Don’t be afraid.’
Then he got into the boat with them and the wind dropped. They were utterly and completely dumbfounded, because they had not seen what the miracle of the loaves meant; their minds were closed.
