02-08-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 8, 2014
Jesus said to his disciples: “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 6:30-34

A safe haven.  A break from the tension and stress.  A time to pray.  A time to think.  A time to eat.  We all need it.  For Jesus and His disciples, just about all they could get (in this incident) was the time in the boat between leaving the shore and landing, because the people followed them on land and met them again before they ever reached that “deserted place.”

Ever need that moment of rest, beloved, so bad that you feel like you’re going to scream?  It happens to us all – even Jesus!  And yet, He is there with you always.  Find the tiny moments.  Give thanks for His presence.  Ask for His strength to be in you.  And you WILL find it – that deserted place where only you and He can be!
