He remained outside in deserted places

“He remained outside in deserted places, and people kept coming to him from everywhere.” (MK 1: 45)

Jesus takes care of us everywhere. Also in “deserted places.” There is no need to go especially there (but of course you can go and I would strongly recommend this) because we have such a place in ourselves: hidden, shameful, and empty. Jesus chooses these places to be with us to give us many consolations. There is no place, no loneliness which cannot be filled with God’s love. And God’s word beckons us—“people kept coming to Him from everywhere.”

“Jesus preached the Gospel of the Kingdom and cured every disease among the people.” (Gospel Acclamation)
