It is I be not afraid


TODAY (Green)1 Kgs 19:9a, 11-13a; Rom 9:1-5; Mt 14:22-33

NEXT WEEK (Green) Is 56:1, 6-7; Rom 11:13-15, 29-32; Mt 15:21-28

This gospel brings into sharp contrast divine action and human response, divine trustworthiness and human doubt, divine power and human weakness. When these contrasts clash, those who give themselves over to divine action are saved; those who rely on their own human response face death. This clash is evident within Peter: when we looks to Jesus and trusts him, he walks on water; when he looks away from Jesus to the frightening wind and waves, he begins to sink. All Jesus’ disciples must contend with this inevitable clash.

God of all goodness, look with love on those who wait for the safe return of their loved ones who serve in the armed forces of their country. In faith and hope we turn to you for comfort.
