16th Sunday in Ordinary Time
To gain balance in our lives is not always easy. The disciples had returned from the mission Jesus had sent them on, and they returned quite tired from the experience. Jesus said that they needed to come apart and rest awhile. Wishful thinking – He saw the crowds following them and took pity on them. Even in the Life of Jesus good intentions had to be shelved for “the great good”. Even though our lives may not have the balance we would like, God can still be there in the middle of our struggle, accompanying us in our difficulties.
Have a good week.
