Reflections from the Shrine

Shrine OLGAs the disciples of Jesus were making the crossing in the boat at Jesus’ command (Matt 14:22), they were confronted by a violent wind that threw them into a panic (v 24). Battling against the strong waves unsettling their boat and being overwhelmed with fear of drowning in the middle of the sea, Jesus, whom they are yet to recognize, walks on the sea towards them.
