A state of the nation could be compared to those times the disciples were caught in a storm. Jesus was with them, but asleep. They call Jesus: “Lord, save us, we are about to drown” (Mt. 8:25; Lk. 8:24). Jesus stood up and quieted the winds and the seas.
same thing shall happen, if we let Jesus take over our lives as
individuals and as a nation, and stop fighting greedily over money,
power, land and politics. Let there be fair play, mutual respect as
fellow created human beings, not divisive hatred. Let us not listen to
those false prophets who are sowing hatred using the Church as a front,
but “inwardly are ravening wolves bringing ruin to the sheep”(Mt.
7:15). The Church of Jesus was never an instrument of hate. Following
the voice of the Good Shepherd will unify the flock towards peace
amidst the storms of life.
