The readings this week speak to me about turmoil-unrest in our lives. In the Book of Job, Job suffers trials of defeat. Why? The question posed by the book of Job is one that still puzzles most people today: Why do God's people suffer? God's response basically challenges Job's right to question the Almighty. It is a way of saying that God's ways and reasons are beyond the comprehension of mere mortals.
In the Gospel reading, a sudden squall on the Sea of Galilee provides the crisis in this story. Mark makes several points. Jesus is asleep, trusting in God, in contrast to the disciples who are frightened. When they rebuke Jesus for sleeping, he rebukes the wind and the sea and then rebukes the disciples for their lack of faith. The timing of the storm is a revelation, for as our first reading today noted, only God can control the wind and sea. Thus Mark points us to Christ's divinity, though the disciples do not fully understand.

Besides indicating Christ's divine power over nature, the calming of the storm suggests his power over evil-for the sea commonly symbolizes evil and chaos. The boat is already a symbol of the church, so the story also challenges us to trust in Christ's power so that we can persevere through the storms that assail us.
So what does this have to do with Father's Day in 2015?
We all have turmoil in our lives, and we don't need to be a father to have it. We go to work early and sometimes stay late, sometimes even bringing work home with us. Many wives are doing the same thing. Kids have homework to do and sports or other activities. Today it is hard to sit at the kitchen table with our family because we are all running in different directions. Then there are electronics that will control our lives, if they haven't already.
Is this the time we need to be rebuked?
In the words of Archbishop William E. Lori, who is also Supreme Chaplain of the Knights of Columbus: "If the day has not gone well at work or at school, or if there is too little time to spend together as a family, tensions may arise. If work so pre- dominates our lives that there is no time left for the family, there needs to be a reevaluation."
My final words to you today:
1) Be a good Dad!
2) Remember God is love and love is not a feeling, it's an act of your will.
3) As Fr. Sas said in last week's homily: "Get to know God."
