Weekdays After the Epiphany of the Lord

When Jesus blessed five loaves and two fish which then fed a crowd of thousands, even the Twelve didn’t grasp that He came to satisfy a deeper hunger. Jesus walked over the water to join the Disciples in a boat as they struggled to row against the waves. They thought they were seeing a ghost, and He had to calm them before calming the choppy water. Leprosy was incurable in biblical times, yet Jesus touched a leper who believed and cured him. Rather than becoming jealous, John the Baptist found joy in making way for the Lord. When we struggle and seem to have less than we need, why do we find it hard to calm down and let the Lord help?
