Dear Friend in the Lord,

Commitment – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that the commitment needed of them, as His Apostles are: sincerity, selflessness and single-mindedness.  And, Jesus, promised that they will be rewarded for their committed fidelity.  Ponder on, “Is our commitment and fidelity deep in our faith, especially when we are facing painful challenges?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 8:23-27

Jesus got into the boat followed by his disciples. Suddenly a storm broke over the lake, so violent that the boat was being swamped by the waves. But he was asleep. So they went to him and woke him saying, ‘Save us, Lord, we are lost!’

And he said to them, ‘Why are you so frightened, you who have so little faith?’ And then he stood up and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. They were astounded and said, ‘Whatever kind of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?’
