Jesus calls out to his faithful: ‘It is I. Do not be afraid.’

He comes to the apostles in the midst of the darkness over the lake, with the wind strong and the sea getting rough. He comes also to us, in the darkness of our lives, to offer us release from our plight of pain and oppression. Although we may not escape our immediate distress, belief in the power of Jesus’ resurrection can give the ability to see through our sufferings to the freedom that lies at its end.

Let us then cry out to him, in the words by which we respond to today’s psalm: ‘May your love be upon us, Lord, as we place all our hope in you.’
