Fr. Rick’s One Minute Homily for Wednesday – 01-05-2022, Wednesday after Epiphany

Mark 45-52 – https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/010522.cfm

WE ARE NEVER ALONE

Over 900 people are moving into Florida every day. The housing industry is booming, and rental prices are soaring. I have a nephew who can’t find a place to rent for 6 months. He is thinking of going back to California, where he can live. He told me that he didn’t want to go to Illinois, where it’s freezing. The contrast is too much to bear.

It makes me think of the contrast between Jesus and the disciples in the gospel today. Jesus just spent time with His Father in prayer, and he was at peace. The disciples in the boat feared for their life as wave upon wave came crashing into their craft.

Maybe you or someone you know is facing a difficult situation out of control. Jesus is fully aware of what is happening. He was on the shore and saw the disciples struggling in the boat, filled with panic and fear. Jesus walks to them on the water. He is walking by you right now on those turbulent waters. The disciples didn’t recognize Jesus. “It’s a ghost!” they thought. 

If you don’t recognize Jesus in front of you, make an act of faith and cry out to Him from your heart. He is there in the turbulent waters of your heart. He knows you need Him. He will get into your boat and calm those stormy seas with a simple word, “Be still and know that I am God.”. 

Pray, “Oh Jesus, I surrender myself to You, take care of everything.” There is peace in any storm.   

IGNITE THE FIRE
