Time for Prayer and Rest

SUMMER-time for recreation and being re-created.
"He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while."
-from Mk 6:30-34


A Christain cannot live his or her life without time with the Lord in prayer.

I know it is not the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, but doe he not give good example of not carrying around excess baggage? Too much "stuff" gets in the way of our call to discipleship.

"He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stickā€”no food, no sack, no money in their belts". From Mk 6:7-13 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

If we could really believe this and apply it today...


"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..."
"Father of the family of nations, open our hearts to greater love of you Son.
Grant that the boundaries of nations will not
set limits to our love and give us the courage to build a land that serves you in truth and justice.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever. Amen."
