Sunday, July 22, 2012:
Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel I asked My apostles to set out for a deserted place so we could take a rest. This is a good suggestion both for your physical and spiritual life. You spend time away from work on vacation when you can, but you can also spend time at retreats to help your spiritual life. When you are at retreats, you have time for Confession, and some spiritual reflections in some talks. It gives you a rest from the noise of worldly concerns, and time to think of how you can improve your spiritual life. Even your daily prayer time gives you a little respite so you can talk to your Lord about your love for Me. Just as I retreated into the mountains to pray, My people need to recharge their spiritual batteries so you can go out to convert souls to the faith. Be good examples of Christian living so people can see by your actions that you practice what you preach. Saving souls is your most precious ministry, and My missionaries will receive a heavenly reward.”
