“When Jesus saw a crowd around Him, He gave orders to cross to the other shore.” -Mt 8:18
My priest preached to us during his Homily that Jesus is telling us to move outside of our comfort zone, that following Him would not be easy, but it is what we need to do as Catholics.
Too often I try and stay safe and shy away from the unknown or the known “unsafe”. It’s easy for us to agree with Jesus and not act, and I struggle with action. So let us collectively stand up for what we believe as Catholics and make our voices heard! The larger the voice, the less scary it will be 🙂
God Bless, Juli
