Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith – “Storms of Life”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus calms the storm. This episode captures the Truth of Jesus’ divine powers that assures His disciples that they are never to fear and they can always trust in His protective care. Jesus is always present to us, especially in our trials and tribulations.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
With the coming of evening, Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Let us cross over to the other side.’ And leaving the crowd behind they took him, just as he was, in the boat; and there were other boats with him. Then it began to blow a gale and the waves were breaking into the boat so that it was almost swamped. But he was in the stern, his head on the cushion, asleep.
They woke him and said to him, ‘Master, do you not care? We are going down!’ And he woke up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, ‘Quiet now! Be calm!’ And the wind dropped, and all was calm again.
Then he said to them, ‘Why are you so frightened? How is it that you have no faith?’ They were filled with awe and said to one another, ‘Who can this be? Even the wind and the sea obey him.’
