Ecce, ambulat supra mare
Behold, He walks upon the sea
Walking on water is one of the miracles attributed to Jesus. The story tells how Jesus helped the apostles who were on a drifting boat in the middle of a storm. In the dark, the disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea and were terrified, believing they were seeing a spirit, but Jesus asked them not to be afraid, which comforted them. He then calmed the storm and got into the boat, and they followed to the coast.
