Saint Angela Merici, Founder of the Ursulines (1470-1540)

Blessed Virgin Mary

Readings of the day: R 7:10-18
Mass: 2 Samuel 12:1-7a 10-17; Resp. Psalm 51; Mark 4:35-41

Jesus rebuked the wind, and said to the sea,
‘Quiet! Be still!’

With Jesus’ words to the raging wind and sea, the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Slowly, Jesus rises and poses two simple questions: ‘Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?’ Very good questions for the day. Saint Angela Merici, pray for us.

Let not your hearts be troubled.
You have faith in God; have faith also in me.
(John 14:1)
