The sting of reprisal molds a leader

Imperfect Peter is called to task by Jesus much as are we when we stray. God loves us no matter what. But we are continuously being molded into better persons to be able to work miracles with God’s help.

The Living Bread

Eating flesh and drinking blood was blatantly physical, but Jesus used these shocking images about himself to emphasize how important it is for those who follow Jesus to become vitally involved in the hard issues of life and death, human suffering, and human frailty, and to bring Christ’s love into all situations of life.

A Very Hearty Meal

Our Life Guard Walks on Water

Jesus is undeterred by our lack of resources or faith, and with what little we can offer, Jesus can work mighty miracles. He is not bothered by storms or winds. His disciples, possibly with over self-confidence after feeding the great crowd, decide to make it on their own in their boat in the sea, but they realize in a storm that for their well-being Jesus needed to be in the boat with them.

Healing the healers

Jesus was an amazing healer, and his examples continue to inspire us. May we be aware of how others in healing and helping professions also need healing themselves, and may we help them find that healing.
