The close of Fr. Glenn's sermon on the calming of the storm in John 6:
Finally, it is a lovely and warm image of Jesus’ most intimate and faithful Apostles nesting in the bosom of the storm tossed ship as he comes to their rescue. And that is certainly the truth. But there was a snake nesting in the infant Church. Fatal and deadly unbelief was not limited to the Rulers of Jerusalem and the good country people of Galilee, but in that bobbing and careening craft that held the whole future of the world in its bosom cowered the traitor, Judas Iscariot, hanging on for dear life. 
Read the whole thing.
