14th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 5 July 2015

From the Dean’s desk….

Dear Friends,

In these last two weeks the Gospels have given us an account of some of the miracles that Jesus en-acted: the calming of the storm [Mark 4:35-41]; the healing of the woman with the haemorrhage [Mark 5:25-34] and the raising of the daughter of Jairus [Mark 521-24.35-43]. While proclaiming his power through these actions, Jesus encounters some negativity from those around him. Twice he is chided by his disciples: firstly as they comment about his lack of interest and compassion in their plight as they face the storm on the Sea of Galilee [Mark 4:39] and secondly, as Jesus tries to identify the person who, amongst the crowd, had touched him, since he noticed that power had gone from him [Mark 5:31]. As Jesus faces news of the death of Jairus’ daughter, he proclaims that she is not dead but asleep. To this those around him laughed and ridiculed him [Mark 5:40].

From the Dean’s desk….

Dear Friends,

In last week’s Gospel we heard one of the disciples ask of Jesus as their boat was being pounded by a storm and they feared dying: ‘Lord, do you not care? We are lost!’[Mark 4:39]. It seems an unreal question to ask of someone who they experienced actually reaching out to people with compassion: the curing of so many people with different types of physical and spiritual ailments [Mark 1:21-27; 29-34; 2:1-12; 3:1-6].

12th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 21 June 2015

From the Dean’s desk….

Dear Friends,

The Gospel for today [Mark 4:35-41] stands as a symbolic story regarding our faith journey. It re-lates that powerful event when the disciples are in the boat moving from one side of Lake Galilee to the other. As a storm breaks out, they fear for their lives and are troubles that Jesus does not seem to care about their fate: he simply and innocently continues to slumber at the back of the boat, oblivious to what is happening around him. The disciples in their fear, and perhaps their agitation and annoyance, cry out: “Master, do you not care. We are lost” [4:39]. Jesus then rebukes the wind with words resonating the language he uses during exorcisms [Mark 1:25] and all is calm again. He then re-bukes the disciples for their lack of faith and fear. It is a story full of symbolism and meaning.
