GOSPEL – SUNDAY, 13 AUGUST, 2017 – Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Matt 14:22-33)
Command me to come to you over the water.
Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side while he would send the crowds away. After sending the crowds away he went up into the hills by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, while the boat, by now far out on the lake, was battling with a heavy sea, for there was a head-wind.
