Jesus Calms the Storm

That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!”Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

Mark 4:35-40

Feast of the Discovery of the Belt of the Holy Virgin (Aug. 29)

The second Sunday after the Assumption of Virgin Mary, the Church celebrates the Feast of the Discovery of her Belt.

Early Christian tradition tells us, that the Apostle St. Thomas received the belt from Virgin Mary as he saw her being taken to heaven by angels. St. Thomas then showed it to the other Apostles, who recognized it as hers- and Virgin Mary’s tomb was found to be empty.

The Holy Belt was made of camel hair by the Virgin herself, as he learned to sew and create altar pieces during her youth in the Temple.

In the Bible we read about clothing of camel hair in regards to St. John the Baptist (the Gospel of St. Matthew 3: 4). Camel hair is very soft and fine, and also nowadays a sought-after material.

During the centuries, many miracles have been ascribed to the Belt of Virgin Mary.
