Gospel: Mark 4: 35-41
Quiet now! Be still!
I’m sure most of us have experienced information overload, noisiness of social media or even being drowned with our own thoughts. It’s too much to bear but when we encounter the perfect words from a bible verse that suddenly calms us down, how do we feel? We feel at peace, right? In the gospel, that’s how the disciples felt when Jesus ordered the storm to be quiet and be still. They got surprised and peaceful at the same time.
In the same way, we might be surprised how God knows and calms down our situation. Jesus is our great Savior in times of great storms in our lives. We are invited to acknowledge the great power that Jesus has.
Mother Mary, may we be like you who has the full confidence and trust in Jesus power of saving us during the great storms of our lives.
