Have courage.  It is I.  Do not be afraid.  – Mk 6:51

Reflection. Even trouble has its purpose.  It leads to prayer.  In times of stress we are once again reunited with the Lord.  There is always hope in the knowledge of His love.

Prayer. Dear Jesus, as the winds stirred up the lake, You came to the frightened Apostles, walking on the water.  Help me to see You whenever the turbulence of my life overwhelms me.  Enable me to take courage and be of good cheer.
