He remained with his disciples.

“So Jesus no longer walked about in public among the Jews, but he left for the region near the desert, to a town called Ephraim, and there he remained with his disciples.” (JN 11: 54)

The last days of Our Lord He spent “with his disciples”; how important it was for Him and them. Being with Him, listening to Him, learning from Him gave them “a new heart and a new spirit.” Their way is not finished, they are not perfect, they will make mistakes, they’ll fail, but Our Lord’s grace will protect them. This coming week we are asked to be closer to Him, maybe less present in “public,” maybe “near the desert,” but as much as possible, close to Him. 

“Cast away from you all the crimes you have committed, says the LORD, and make for yourselves a new heart and a new spirit.” (Verse before the Gospel)
