Ordinary Time, 12th Sunday (B) When paddling across Death's Door in a kayak, even small waves can feel frightening. Imagine a fishing boat that is being swamped with water! Jesus wakes up and quiets the storm. Only God has authority over the natural elements. Jesus is showing that he is God.
There are storms raging around us right now. But more frightening than those are the storms that rage in our hearts. Jesus is in your heart, but has he fallen asleep? Perhaps instead of waking him, we should be entering into the peace of his heart. Be with the Lord and you will find peace in any storm.

Going Deeper: Next time your heart feels stormy, go to church or to a prayerful place and spend some quiet time with Jesus. Let him calm your heart.
