Sometimes an unexpected connection comes to mind as we experience prayerful listening to and meditating on a passage of sacred scripture. This was the passage: Mark 4:41 (ESV) And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even wind and sea obey him?"
This was the connection: Hebrews 1:3 (ESV) He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
This is the One we receive under the forms of bread and wine, the one born of Mary. In the slang of today's youth, how awesome is that?!
