About Today Readings

St Dominic

Jesus walks on water

Today’s Gospel reminds us that faith is two-way. We have faith in our God to be with us and protect us, but our God has faith in us too. Jesus reached out his hand to Peter, having faith that he would come to him. The fact that Peter’s faith then wavered, is a reminder that even Jesus ‘rock’ wobbled at times. Peter was the first Pope. Jesus had faith that even though he was fallible, he was worth believing in. Jesus believed that Peter would get up and was worth it. Our God has that belief in us too. Along with our faith in our God, we need to remember that our God has faith in us and so we need to have faith in ourselves.
