“People were coming and going in great numbers, and they had no opportunity even to eat. So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.”
What is the “deserted place” in your life where you can “rest a while”—that place which simultaneously gives you peace and energy?
Take some time today to go to your “deserted place,” even if only in your imagination, to realize why Jesus invited the apostles and you to do this.
Heritage word—“Peace is the greatest pledge of God’s love for you. Preserve this precious treasure carefully.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
