June 23.  Sunday 12B.  Fr Kgomotso posed a question. “Why do you think so many natural disasters seem to be happening around the world?  Why not go and discuss it with your families.” The Masons did and it became quite a heated discussion.  “People don’t believe enough that God can control the elements if he wants to.”  “But God has created nature and its laws and operates within those laws himself.”  “What about faith the size of a mustard seed?”  That is a tricky question for me too.  I say I do believe but often struggle to do so.” 

Reflect, share, scripture:  Master do you not care, we are going down!”   Jesus woke up and rebuked the wind and the sea and the wind dropped.  He said to them, why are you so frightened? How is it that you have no faith?”  Mark 4:35-41.  Pope Francis:  All of us can cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation, each according to his own culture, experience, involvements and talents.  The Creator does not abandon us, he never forsakes his loving plan. LS 13 ACTION AND PRAYER.  Many of the storms in life are weather-related but not all are.  Where is my faith strongest?
