19 TOA 1lec.jpg


There he came to a cave, where he took shelter. But the word of the LORD came to him, "Why are you here, Elijah?" 
Then the LORD said, "Go outside and stand on the mountain before the LORD; the LORD will be passing by." A strong and heavy wind was rending the mountains and crushing rocks before the LORD--but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake--but the LORD was not in the earthquake. 
After the earthquake there was fire--but the LORD was not in the fire. After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound. 
When he heard this, Elijah hid his face in his cloak and went and stood at the entrance of the cave. A voice said to him, "Elijah, why are you here?" 


Psalms 85(84):9ab-10.11-12.13-14. 
I will listen for the word of God; surely the LORD will proclaim peace To his people, to the faithful, to those who trust in him. 
I will listen for the word of God; surely the LORD will proclaim peace To his people, to the faithful, to those who trust in him. 
Near indeed is salvation for the loyal; prosperity will fill our land. 
Love and truth will meet; justice and peace will kiss. 

Truth will spring from the earth; justice will look down from heaven. 
The LORD will surely grant abundance; our land will yield its increase. 
Prosperity will march before the Lord, and good fortune will follow behind. 

Letter to the Romans 9:1-5. 
I speak the truth in Christ, I do not lie; my conscience joins with the holy Spirit in bearing me witness 
that I have great sorrow and constant anguish in my heart. 
For I could wish that I myself were accursed and separated from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kin according to the flesh. 
They are Israelites; theirs the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; 
theirs the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, is the Messiah. God who is over all be blessed forever. Amen. 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 14:22-33. 

 

19 TOA ev.jpg


Then he made the disciples get into the boat and precede him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When it was evening he was there alone. 
Meanwhile the boat, already a few miles offshore, was being tossed about by the waves, for the wind was against it. 
During the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them, walking on the sea.
When the disciples saw him walking on the sea they were terrified. "It is a ghost," they said, and they cried out in fear. 
At once (Jesus) spoke to them, "Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid."
Peter said to him in reply, "Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water." 
He said, "Come." Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus. 
But when he saw how (strong) the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" 
Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
After they got into the boat, the wind died down. 
Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying, "Truly, you are the Son of God."
