07-04-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 4, 2017
(St. Elizabeth of Portugal, OFS)
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!” He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm.  Mt_8:23-27

When the waves of stress or hurt, the waves of temptation or failure, the waves of fear and anxiety are sweeping over us, beloved, what is our response?  Do we cower and hide?  Do we turn to drink or drugs?  Or do we turn to Jesus?

Jesus has the power to calm us.  All we need is the faith to believe He will!  Ever experience that calm, beloved?  Sometimes it’s so incredible, we can just walk on water.  Trust in Jesus!  And His calm will fill you with the strength, the fearlessness, the courage to accomplish just about anything!  Maybe even walking on water!
