Meditation, Walking on Water With Jesus


Peter Walking On Water.
Originally uploaded by J.Rashid
From today's Magnificat.

May the Lord give us
all the courage that we need
to go the way he shepherds us.

That when he calls
we may go unfrightened.

If he bids us come to him
across the waters,
that unfrightened we may go

And if he bids us climb a hill
may we not notice that it is a hill,
mindful only of
the happiness of his company.

He made us for himself,
that we should travel with him
and see him at the last
in his unveiled beauty
in the abiding city where
he is light
and happiness
and endless home,

Father Bede Jarrett, O.P.

Father Jarrett (+ 1934) was a Dominican priest from England renowned for his preaching, his lectures,and many books on theology and spirituality.

  5. "Mindful only of the happiness of his company." Oh, to live every moment of every day like that! Something to strive for. Hope you had a wonderful day, Cathy.

  6. These words spoke to my heart. The Lord called out onto the water awhile back to prepare for a new direction of call and I grow weary from time to time. Words of comfort and encouragement like these help me to keep my eyes on him. Thank you!
