19th Sunday of Ordinary Time Year A: cycle 1


 

Today, the Church calls us to pay attention to two ways by which Jesus displays his love for us. The First Reading shows the gentle and welcoming quality of God. Moses went out of his cave to welcome and encounter God only when he heard the gentle breeze. The Gospel reminds us of another aspect of God’s caring love through his Son Jesus Christ.  In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus comes inside the storm to save his disciples. Jesus rides the storm to deliver his disciples. Jesus could have immediately calmed the storm. He did not. His first attention is his disciples. He wants to ensure that his disciples have the faith to ride the storm as well. What a loving God we worship. Jesus will leave no stones unturned in his efforts at delivering us from evil through his love for humanity. His infinite love and compassion for us, pushes him to even enter and ride the storms of our lives just to get to our hearts!
