In the last post, we learned that Jesus quieted the wind and stilled the sea. This was done from a boat when his disciples with him thought that they were going to perish during the violent squall. Father Matthew in today's homily likened our life to being in a boat. When we face the storms of life, we can be shaken; but Jesus is always there in the boat with us. Whenever we are in danger and need his help, he's going to quiet the wind and still the sea for us. A great analogy that gives great consolation.
