Letter from Father Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I remember being at a Mass when today’s gospel was proclaimed. The time came for the priest to say a few words by way of commentary. I have never forgotten what he said. “The miracle” he said, “was not so much Jesus walking on the water, it was the fact that Jesus gets into the boat of our lives with us.”

That really is the miracle that needs to be stated and restated day in, day out.

Those wonderful words addressed to Peter are also addressed to us “Come ye; I am; do not be afraid. I am; the name for God. God is with us. EMMANUEL.

Have a good week.

Fr. Richard
