Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time –
God calms a storm at sea, but I think God is more concerned with calming the storms inside us where the demons really exist. Our first reaction to a crisis is to want God to change our external circumstances, but God seems to focus more on calming our inner seas. Isn’t it true that how we experience the world around us is largely determined by the condition of our souls? Usually, the change that matters is not the rearranging of the objective world, but the transforming of our hearts.
