AMIDST THE STORMS OF LIFE, KEEP FOCUSED ON JESUS
 
 
The image here of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is perhaps one of my favorite ones of Christ.  If you'll notice, the way that this picture is portrayed, the eyes of Christ is always following you.  At my parents house on Kauai we still have the original copy of this image that belonged to my grandmother who devoutly hung it in her bedroom.  She would tell us kids, that Jesus was always watching us whether we are good or bad, but it is up to us to keep our focus on him and to know that he is always wanting us to come back into his gaze of love and mercy.
       Today we heard the gospel of Jesus walking on the water amidst a great storm on the sea.  We also see an very intimate and personal moment that Jesus shares with his disciples. Jesus sends his disciples ahead of him out on the sea.  He is preparing them for something and that something is a revelation of who Jesus is, the "Son of God” as recognized by Peter at the end of the gospel.  The real point of the gospel message is that as the disciples are on the sea, a storm comes in and they are being tossed about by the power of the ocean.  We can only imagine the fear, anxiety, and panic that these men may have experienced.  They could have died!  But then, Jesus appears, walking on water, and tells them, “Take courage, it is I, do not be afraid.” Jesus is telling them it is God…I AM, who these faithful Jewish men would have been familiar with.  The God who has been with them since the beginning will continue to guide them through his Son Jesus Christ.  This is a testament of their faith.  Peter, tests his faith and asks Jesus to command that he too may walk on water, but Peter doubts and then becomes afraid.  Jesus saves Peter despite his lack of faith in Christ.   “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
      How many of us can relate to Peter?  We claim to have faith.  We come to Mass every week, we say our prayers, and we try to be “good” people.  But what happens when the storms of life come: the fears, anxieties, family problems, financial worries, health issues, and death?  What do we do?  Do we test our faith and call out to the Lord for him to help us through the storm?  Or do we lose focus of him and drown in our weaknesses and fears? Point is this, no matter how bad the storm, the waves and rains might be in our life, we need to keep our focus on Jesus.  Then, with true faith will we be able to walk with him on water in all kinds of conditions and acknowledge him as “truly the Son of God” and be faith-filled disciples, like those in the boat in today’s gospel and do as Jesus tells us to do.
