Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
As the current stand-off between North Korea and the USA continues let us pray for a peaceful resolution to the situation.
O God, who show a father's care for all,
grant, in your mercy,
that the members of the human race,
to whom you have given a single origin,
may form in peace a single family
and always be united by a fraternal spirit.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Mass for the Preservation of Peace and Justice (The Roman Missal).
