About Today Readings

1 John 4:11-18. Psalm 71(72):1-2, 10-13. Mark 6:45-52.

Lord, every nation on earth will adore you – Psalm 71(72):1-2, 10-13.

‘Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.’

The disciples are terrified because they do not realise that it is Jesus who walks towards them. Like them, we so often cannot see clearly what is right in front of us, because we are afraid or hurting or proud. Awareness of the presence of Jesus transforms these feelings and helps return us to full vision.

Let us allow the truth of God’s message to permeate our being, rather than regretting the past or worrying about the future. We are invited to find the courage to simply rest in the presence of the God who seeks to comfort, console, and give joy.
