Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

The Jesus who has risen from the sleep of death is the faithful hope of every disciple. Often storms sweep down on us as suddenly as the wind and waves on the Sea of Galilee, and we find ourselves unprepared for sickness, a terminal diagnosis for ourselves or a loved on, difficult personal relations, job loss.  We may find ourselves saying: “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”  Yet Jesus is present in the storms and will bring us to the shore of new beginnings and new initiatives.
