“But he would withdraw to deserted places to pray”
The Gospel ends by saying “but he would withdraw to deserted places to pray.”
Many of us live very busy lives (even the unemployed are very busy – looking for work is hard work, especially nowadays), but the example of our Lord in today’s Gospel is desperately important.
He worked hard, he addressed the needs before him, “but he would withdraw to deserted places to pray.”
May you and I always remember every day to take at least a few moments by ourselves to pray.
