“After he had fed the people, Jesus made the disciples get into a boat and precede him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When it was evening he was there alone.” (MT 14: 23)
For so many of us it is so difficult to be alone; always music in the background, always headphones, TV almost non-stop on. Remedy for bad days: shopping or alcohol—I deserve it. New objects, new people, new places—everything is better than being alone. But the only way to meet our true self, to meet Our Lord Who knows us perfectly (and loves unconditionally) is to be alone. In the beginning, it could be scary and hard, but with every moment and with every day we will more and more easy. And we will soon happy with every moment of solitude.
“I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for his word.” (Gospel Acclamation)
