Extract: When the delighted but tired Apostles returned from their mission, they had many stories to share with Jesus: how they were able to cast out demons, heal the sick and preach his Gospel. However, the place where they assembled was busy with many people coming and going and no place to eat! Jesus said to them, “Come with me privately to an isolated place and rest a while”. (Mark 6:30)

Thought: Jesus wanted quality time with his Apostles, time for reflection and prayer, as well as, time for spiritual growth and physical rest. Jesus, their Shepherd and leader, was compassionate and caring towards his Apostles needs.

Reflection: Lord Jesus, remove all pride and selfishness from within me and grant me the wisdom to follow our Church Leaders. Good Shepherd, keep my eyes and heart firmly focused on you.
