FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
While reflecting on today’s Gospel, I imagined myself in a boat. The storm was raging and the wind was howling. It was pitch black. I was scared to death and I heard a voice: “Come to me - get out of the boat and come to me.” And my response was: “Wait a minute! You know I can’t swim and you want me to get out of the boat? I don’t think so.” It would take great trust and courage to get me out of that boat.
This Gospel provides us with a great lesson. Like the Apostles in that boat, we too have embarked on a voyage. It is the voyage of life. Sometimes our boat makes good progress. At other times, it runs into strong head winds and heavy seas: like being diagnosed with a terminal illness, suffering mental anguish over a family problem, the times when we don’t feel good about ourselves and don’t see our goodness or usefulness, the frantic pace of life, the moments when we get so angry at God because of the sudden death of someone we love.
Life can be so difficult with its crosses, responsibilities and pressures. And yet when we are on that boat, if we focus for a moment and make time to listen to our heart, we will hear Jesus say: “Come to me. I am here. Don’t be afraid. Life is hard. I know it. I lived it too but I am with you. You and I have to trust and that is difficult to do sometimes. We have to be unafraid to get out of the boat and walk into God’s arms.
Someone once said: “ Life by the yard is hard but by the inch...it is a cinch.” There is much wisdom in those words. We need to live in the present moment, trusting that when the storms of life besiege us, we can cry out “Lord save me” and God will because God, our lifeguard, walks on water.
God bless you. Father Tom
