    Job 38:1, 8-11

    1Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind: 8"Or who shut in the sea with doors, when it burst forth from the womb; 9when I made clouds its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band, 10and prescribed bounds for it, and set bars and doors, 11and said, `Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed'?

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 107:23-26, 28-31

    23Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the great waters; 24they saw the deeds of the LORD, his wondrous works in the deep. 25For he commanded, and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea. 26They mounted up to heaven, they went down to the depths; their courage melted away in their evil plight; 28Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress; 29he made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. 30Then they were glad because they had quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven. 31Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to the sons of men!

    2 Corinthians 5:14-17

    14For the love of Christ controls us, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died. 15And he died for all, that those who live might live no longer for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. 16From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once regarded Christ from a human point of view, we regard him thus no longer. 17Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.

    Mark 4:35-41

    35On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us go across to the other side." 36And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. 37And a great storm of wind arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. 38But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him and said to him, "Teacher, do you not care if we perish?" 39And he awoke and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still!" And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40He said to them, "Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?" 41And they were filled with awe, and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even wind and sea obey him?"
