Welcome to Our Lady of the Rosary
From the Pastor's Desk...
19th Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
“BATTLING WITH A HEAVY SEA, FOR THERE WAS A HEADWIND.”
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Today we encounter God as a gentle breeze and Jesus as a God who walks upon the water and saves us when we cry out to him in our drowning moments. Yes, our God is a God who saves, not a God who destroys people and things. We see this in the first reading from the first book of the Kings 19:9-11, 15 and the Gospel of Matthew 14:22-35.
In the Gospel just referred to, the disciples are battling with a heavy sea. Jesus comes to them, calls Peter out of the boat, saves him as he sinks in doubt and gets into the boat with them. As a result, the sea was calmed.
Today, we are battling with a heavy sea. Covid-19 is throwing heavy waves at us and hurricanes are presenting daunting challenges to us. Let us pray the prayer of Peter as he felt the force of raging winds and began to sink.
“Lord save me (us).”
