Sr. Maria of Merciful Love, SOLT tells us to "get out of the boat." As she reflects on the readings for this coming Sunday, she focuses our attention on Peter walking on the water. Peter does something extraordinary when he steps out of the boat, amidst the waves, to walk to Jesus. Sister encourages us, this week, to pray that the Lord will increase our own faith, that we might have the courage to follow Him.
