Keeping calm on the boat

From today’s gospel reading. Although it may seem that Our Lord is “asleep at the wheel” we need to stay calm, flee from sin and pray.

I know that I would have been included with the panicky apostles who want to wake up Our Lord.


We (myself included) need to remember that He is God and He knows what He is doing….especially in there troubling, disordered and strange times we live in.

Sunday XXIV After Pentecost
Matthew 8:23-27

And when he entered into the boat, his disciples followed him: And behold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but he was asleep. And they came to him, and awaked him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish. And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up, he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm. But the men wondered, saying: What manner of man is this, for the winds and the sea obey him?

Have a blessed Sunday everyone!
