Friends of the Rosary:

In today’s reading (Mark 4:35–41), Jesus calms the storm that confronts our lives and threatens our peace.

A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat,
so that it was already filling up.
Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion.
They woke him and said to him,
“Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”
He woke up,
rebuked the wind,
and said to the sea, “Quiet! Be still!”
The wind ceased and there was great calm.
Then he asked them, “Why are you terrified?
Do you not yet have faith?

In this episode, the disciples stand symbolically for all of us journeying through life.
When the trials and anxieties of life confront us, our first reaction is fear.

But then Jesus successfully calms the waves.

If we are awake in the presence of Christ within us, then we can withstand the most frightening storms.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
