This Week in Catholic Liturgy: Against The Wind

Bishop Cullen told the assembly gathered for our ordination that my classmate and I were "walking against the wind" by becoming priests in this culture.  Just so, the boat filled with disciples was also facing opposition until Jesus came along.  Greater still was the opposition that Peter began to encounter within himself after taking the initial step onto the raging sea.  "When he saw how strong the wind was..."  But how much stronger would Peter be, because God had his back!
