19TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - A The images Matthew uses are powerful in their di-

rect simplicitydisciples in a boat, night, stormy waters.

We can readily identify with the reality to which these im-

ages point both as church and as individuals.

The disciples are like most of uswe believe that

the Lord is with us, but our trust is quite conditional. We

tend to panic when a sudden storm arises in the middle of

the night, and things get out of control. Like Peter we may

start out with confidence, but soon we notice that the wind

is really strong and the water is really deep. Our confidence

turns to fear. Today's gospel assures us that Jesus also

stretches out his hand to save us with those words that must

have been spoken with affection: "O you of little faith, why

did you doubt? Another life implication emerges if we

shift our focus from the disciples to Jesus. Matthew notes

that before the episode on the stormy sea, Jesus had gone up

on a mountain by himself to pray.

Jesus' humanity, through intimate communion of

prayer with the Father, is completely transparent so that

divine power flows through him to overcome the destruc-

tive powers of evil. As Christians we are not meant to be

helpless victims when storms threaten to destroy us. We too

are called to be in close communion of prayer with the Fa-

ther so that with Christ's courage and love we can confront

the powers of destruction in our world. In this regard, we

might take to heart that astonishing passage in the fourth

gospel: " . . . whoever believes in me will do the works that

I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am go-

ing to the Father (Jn 14:12). Campion P. Gavaler, O.S.B

Peter was in Jesus own presence. He saw Jesus

walk on water and heard him say, Come! Even this

was not enough for him to ignore the storm. He was a

sailor, and he knew the danger of a storm at sea. He

had no comparable memory or skill to help him under-

stand how to walk on water.

Many today worship noise. When we pursue

power, wealth, fame or ego, we fashion and adore

idols of noise, petty gods whose thundering demands

allow not a moment of rest. Just as likely, we find our-

selves in Peters condition: followers of Christ and re-

cipients of his grace who still hesitate before the fume

and froth of the worlds storms.

We may sink a few times in the process, but we

can rely on Christ to teach us to walk on water. This

practice will take many forms. The rookie volunteer

who teaches a sixth-grade religion class is walking on

water. The college graduate who joins a service corps

to perform works of mercy in a tough neighborhood is

walking on water. The Catholic Worker arrested for

advocating peace is walking on water. The parents

who choosesometimes against the advice of doc-

torsto give birth to a handicapped child are walking

on water. Peters walk, however brief, led immediately

to the rescue of his fellow disciples. Like Peters, our

acts of faith, shaky as they might be, will help effect

the salvation of others.- Michael Simone
