Jesus Calms the Storm! - Ordinary Time 12B

TODAY’S READING

Let us pray.
Dear God,
We know you are always with us. Sometimes we forget this, especially when we are really scared. Help us remember to turn to you always and give us faith to know you are always there. In Jesus we ask this,
Amen.

  • What do you think the disciples were saying to each other before they finally woke up Jesus?
  • What do you think they might have said to each other after Jesus’ calmed the storm?
  • Why was it important for the apostles to know that Jesus could calm the sea?

In the Prayers of the Faithful, we offer prayers to God for the salvation of all. How do we respond to each of those prayers? 

FUN FACTS

The Sea of Galilee’s location makes it subject to sudden and violent storms as the wind comes over the eastern mountains and drops suddenly onto the sea, which is 700 feet below sea level. Storms are especially likely when an east wind blows cool air over the warm air that covers the sea. The cold air (being heavier) drops as the warm air rises. This sudden change can produce surprisingly furious storms in a short time, just as it did in Jesus’ day.

MEET OUR EXTENDED FAMILY

FAMILY FUN

Family Challenge

Write out the verse from Isaiah 41:10 and place it in a spot that will be a daily reminder for your family to trust God in times of fear: “Do not fear: I am with you; do not be anxious: I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand” – Isaiah 41:10.

Plant a Garden

If you don’t have a storm like we hear about in today’s Gospel, create your own garden in a dedicated space in your backyard or in pots. Plant your seeds in rich soil and water them as needed. Be sure they get the right amount of sunlight. Over time, you can watch your seeds grow!
