On Today’s Gospel

How many of us serving our Lord, will return to the fountainhead? The streams that flow out and from within? To share with Him the very adventure in His love? To seek counsel? To share our joys, even our sorrows? To be refreshed? To give Him honour, thanks and praise?

Come to me, I will give you rest, says the Lord. Do we take our rest in Him from our labours of love? We serve Him best when we are rejuvenated in Him, do we ensure we set some quiet and away time to do this?

Do we set aside time to grow in the knowledge of our faith? To learn from Him? To hear His word? To enrich ourselves in His love? So that we too can be true Shepherds for others, to care for those hungry for His word, abandoned, lost. To love as He loves…

GOSPEL 6:30–34

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. So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place. People saw them leaving and many came to know about it. They hastened there on foot from all the towns and arrived at the place before them.

When Jesus disembarked and saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.
