A life of faith means wanting to be with the Lord,and that means constantly searching for him wherever he is.(Pope Francis, Tweet, Feb. 4, 2018)
Jesus and the Apostles go off for R & R so to speak, to a deserted place. Vast numbers of people continued to come and go; so many people that Jesus and Co. had no opportunity to take nourishment. Not to be fooled, the people didn’t miss a beat. Missing the boat, though,They hastened there on foot from all the towns and arrived at the place before them.
Not to be daunted, the faithful continued searching for the Lord wherever he went.JESUS WAITS FOR US.HIS HEART IS MOVED WITH PITY.HE TEACHES US.I BELIEVE, HELP MY UNBELIEF!
