“The Apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them, ‘Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.’ People were coming and going in great numbers, and they had no opportunity even to eat.” (MK 6: 30-31)
It is Saturday and the beginning of the weekend, so God’s word perfectly reminds us about the importance of rest. But it also reminds us about the importance of “come away by yourself to a deserted place and rest a while,” because we need time to reflect, to make a good examination of our conscience, and learn from our mistakes what we can do to improve our love and relationship in this coming week. When we can reflect, when we can stop for a while, we can do things more consciously and more deeply.
“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
