The still point within

EXCERPT – That still point, that everyone has within, helps us see that every moment of our lives is reverent. Resting in the love of God not only changes us but also invites us to take on the injustices and systematic oppression in the world. It gives us the spirit and courage to Show Up. This is not an easy time and many of us are going through painful cognitive dissonance and trauma from the virus. We strive to let go of untruths and unlearn destructive beliefs. We have to live through the ravages of the virus and the unknown….

CELEBRANT’S INTRODUCTION

Today’s readings remind us that God speaks to us and beckons us in so many unexpected and surprising ways. Some of us may respond better to an almost indistinguishable whisper, while others need a wake-up call that requires great courage on our part — like Peter’s call to walk on water. Hearing, seeing, giving our full assent to what we experience, may not be easy. But the message has been consistent throughout history: God continues to invite us.

PENITENTIAL ACT

Lord Jesus, you appeared to your disciples on the stormy sea: Lord, have mercy. Christ Jesus, you commanded Peter to walk on the water: Christ, have mercy. Lord Jesus, you call us to have the courage to come to you: Lord, have mercy.

Facing fear

CATHOLIC INSPIRATIONFr. Andrew Ricci

Fear is a part of life, yet our response determines the impact it will have upon us. Peter’s experience of fear reminds us that we have an opportunity today to call upon the Lord for the courage we need to face our fears with the power of faith. (2017)

To experience God, look at the people around you

EXCERPT — Today’s Gospel shows Jesus training the disciples to be future leaders. They are put in an uncomfortable situation and must seek God’s help in order to survive… A direct theophany like Jesus’ walking on water is unlikely, so we need to be attuned to the world around us and look for God in the places and people we encounter.

Why walk on water?

EXCERPT Sometimes Jesus is asking us to leave what is familiar, what is easy, what seems secure, and come to him in the midst of the storm. And when he calls us, here is the good news. Although the waves may be high and the winds strong, and people might think that we are crazy to step out of the boat, we are simply being disciples.

BUILDING ON THE WORDFr. George Sigma


The presence of the Lord

EXCERPTPeter’s story is the same for every Christian. We sometimes forget Who the main character in our life story is: Jesus, the Savior of the world. If we change our focus, and permit the chaos and evil around us to distract and influence us, then we will sink into the very chaos that we fear! On the other hand, if we keep our focus on the Source of our safety, our salvation, the One to Whom we call out to save us, then the winds die down, and we are once again content in the Presence of the Lord.

Church Leadership

by Fr. Clement Thibodeau

Leaders in the Church must have a very special relationship with Jesus Christ. In the Gospel according to Matthew, which is particularly addressed to the leaders of the Christian-Jewish assembly (Church), Peter represents all the apostles, indeed all the leaders among those who believe in Jesus. Matthew arranges his material to show that Peter was prepared by Jesus in a very special way for his role in the early community. All Church leaders after Peter look to this Gospel for an outline of Christ’s teaching concerning leadership.

SAINT OF THE DAY

Saint of the Day Videos, Podcasts, & Tweets

Saint Dominic became aware that the preacher had to practice what he preached and connect with the people of God. He and a few Cistercians formed what was the beginning of the Order of Preachers, better known as the Dominicans. Living a life of simplicity, the Dominicans were committed to active contemplation, or contemplative action—whichever way it is said, it is the combination of two ways of life.
