Jesus the Lord of the Storm

Jesus said to his disciples: “Why is it that you are so frightened? How is it that you have no faith?” Over the past few years the Church has been going through a fierce storm. It has been a time of anxiety and worry for many. It has also been a time of deep hurt and anger for others. And there seems to be no end to it. The word of Jesus today is very timely for us. Even though the storm is real and we have to face the reality of it with all its implications, we have to remember that Christ is with us and he will bring calm again. However, this does not mean that we do nothing but wait. We have a real responsibility to work for that calm by the ways we love one another in our homes and in our community. This will take a lot of generosity with our time and our talents in building marriage and family life to their fullest and it will take a new commitment to building ourselves as a community of faith and hope.


Morning Prayer, when together

Father, guide and protector of your people,

grant us an unfailing respect for your name,

and keep us always faithful to our love for one another.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.


During the day, when apart.

Lord, receive the offering of our love.

May our praise of you

purify us in mind and heart

and make us always eager to serve you.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord.


Evening/Night Prayer together.

Lord, you call us to the sacrament of marriage.

Renew your life within us

and bring us to the joys of eternal life.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
