Calm in the Storm

02-03-2019Eucharistic Adoration

“O afflicted one, storm-tossed, and not comforted, behold I will set your stones in antimony, and lay your foundations with sapphires.”—Isaiah 54:11

There is a deep sense of peace in Jesus’ Eucharistic presence. This calm is perhaps most palpable when we feel storm-battered and worn thin from the cares of the world, work, and our family obligations. Jesus calls us to Himself especially when we feel close to drowning when we feel the waves of adversity going far above our heads. In those moments, Christ addresses Himself to us in the same way that He addressed St. Peter, “Take heart it is I;have no fear.” (Matthew 14:27). Jesus takes us by the hand and provides the strength and courage we need to endure in trials. The peace of Christ brings healing and fortitude.
