This week’s Gospel tells of Jesus calling Peter to also walk on water. Peter and his companions, tossed about by waves and wind, saw the Lord as a ghost upon the water and were terrified. The voice over the tumult said: “Get hold of yourselves! It is I! Do not be afraid!” Peter heard the call to cross the raging waters. But daunted by the strength of the wind and his own frailty, he began to sink in fear. Once back in the boat, the storm past, we are able to say with a faith hitherto unfelt, “Beyond doubt you are the Son of God.” (Mt 14:22-33)
Please have a safe and restful summer. Please join us at Mass as we celebrate this holy season and find ways we can be inspired by Jesus’s love.
