Storms, tempests, thunderstorms, lightning out of the blue!
Do you know these phenomena in your life too? Vibrations of any kind. They can be violent and even life-threatening. They can also be everyday challenges and stressful situations.
And God is in the midst of them. “I am the Here-I-am” “Fear not!”
This is Moses’ experience with the holy, unapproachable God. (Cf. Ex 3:2)
And this is Mary’s experience with the God who becomes man in her. (Cf. Lk 1:30)
The same God has made himself present for us in the Eucharist.
The same God before whom I kneel in adoration also tells me: I am here. Do not be afraid.
Learning to smile in the middle of my storm or hurricane, like this child in the picture - because God is there, is there for me and loves me infinitely.
Become calm with the calm God.
Jesus, let us learn this smile in trust in you!
Now, as I stand before you in the Eucharist, and for the hour of my death
