Amos 3:1-8; 4:11-12Ps 5:4-8Matthew 8:23-27
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:
As Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him.
Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea,
so that the boat was being swamped by waves;
but he was asleep.
They came and woke him, saying,
“Lord, save us! We are perishing!”
Today’s Gospel is a good piece to go back to our past tragedies which has wounded us and harmed to our personality, dignity and justice. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday , today and forever. When we call on to him for our childhood / adolescent / youth wounds , he goes back to our past and heals all those wounds and once again there will be peace and calmness in our life. No medical Science can efficiently wipe out the scars of the past . Jesus himself is the peace of our life,we must lean on him every time , every situation , there is nothing impossible for the man who commanded the Sea to calm down. The greatness of our Lord must be shown in profound faith and love towards him.
Loving and believing him is trusting on his teaching the Word of God. If we keep his Words and believe in them there is nothing in this World which can trouble us in the Presence of the Creator. We must practice these things in our Worldly circumstances , which increase our faith and love.
Prayer: Lord set reminder in my mind to call on to you every time of our trouble so that you will hold our hand lead us to peace and calmness of our life.
TO DO TODAY: Let us offer that one Circumstance or Wound or Sin which troubles us every time in our life.
