Welcome to St. Mark - St. James Parish




Today’s Gospel gives us a picture for an answer. As long as he has faith and doesn’t look down,
Peter comes to the Lord, walking on water. No matter how sorrowful a person’s failures,
he can nonetheless come to the Lord. Doing so may feel like walking without any solid ground underfoot.
But faith is a kind of walking on water, too, isn’t it?
As long as one doesn’t look down, as long as one keeps his eyes fixed on Jesus in faith,
even walking on nothing to come to him is possible. 

All the promises of God are fulfilled in Him.
