Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – August 13, 2017

Gospel Reading: Matthew 14:22-33

“When the disciples saw [Jesus] walking on the sea, they were terrified. ‘It is a ghost,’ they said, and they cried out in fear. At once, Jesus spoke to them, ‘Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.’”

When Jesus’ disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were unsure of what to think. Whether or not we would readily admit it, we would be similarly apprehensive. The new school year will start in no time, and there are probably some things about which you are fearful. However, do not fear the miracles that the Lord will work in your and your students’ lives.

How will you exhibit to your students that it takes courage to be a disciple of Christ?
