I read an internet meme once that said: “Never in the history of CALMING down has anyone CALMED down by being told to CALM down.” When we get desperate, it is really hard to find peace. In our Gospel this Sunday, Jesus CALMS the storm as well as brings CALM and peace to the hearts of the disciples in the boat with him. Jesus is the Prince of Peace. In him we find the true power and strength to weather the storms of our lives. Often times we are beset with concerns and anxieties. May we learn to fully surrender to God, to receive the CALM and peace he brings.
