19th Sunday In Ordinary Time

Pope Benedict made the point that the essence of faith is that something meets us that is greater than anything we can think of for ourselves. 

That is literally what happens to the disciples as they see Jesus walking on the water.  Jesus summons them to faith– a way of approaching reality that entails leaving behind our old way of measuring things and seeing all according to this Something Greater that meets us. 

We should not be surprised that Christ often will come in ways that we least expect, as Elijah found out in that tiny whispering sound.  And when such faith takes hold of us, we want everyone we know to share in it, as Saint Paul testifies today.
