Theme: “The Family of God: Against Contrary Winds Prevailing”
Homily by Abp. Ricardo Alcaraz

“Faith in God will allow you to soar above the storms of life.”

Jonah 2:1-9

Romans 10:6a-11

Psalm 29:1-4; 10-11

Matthew 14:22-33

1.(v.22-27) Trust that the Lord is with you in the middle of the storm.

2.(v.28-33) Look and keep looking at the Lord even when the storm grows stronger; even when problems become complicated.

“As believers, we need to establish a relationship with our Father; we need to stay in His presence.”

“In the middle of your problems, God is giving you strength.”

“The presence of problems does not mean God’s absence.”

Faith – is the confidence in God’s ability to care for you.

Fear – confidence in the enemy’s ability to destroy you.

“The Power of God can only be received and operated on Faith in God.”
