TWELFTH SUNDAY OF YEAR B
(Day for Life)
20th June 2021


Dear Parishioner,

Today's Gospel reading from Mark 4: 35 - 41 is another tempest; another occasion for revelation and this time a revelation of the divinity of Jesus. The sea is traditionally a sign for chaos and evil forces from which only the power of God can save. So we are meant to recognise Jesus as God's agent. The delay in Jesus' reaction to crisis reflects those events in the Old Testament where God seems absent. In our own time we must always have trust in God when he seems absent, even amidst the most terrible storm.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; before whom shall I be afraid. May each one of us follow Christ no matter what storms come into our life. Amen.

Deacon Kevin
