Read! Reflect! Respond!

When you hear the words of today’s Gospel proclaimed,
what clings to your memory?
What word or phrase strikes you?
by sharing your response to the question with others!

THEME: Sometimes we need to pause for rest with Jesus.

Gospel : Mark 6:30-34
The apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them,“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” People were coming and going in great numbers, and they had no opportunity even to eat. So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place. People saw them leaving and many came to know about it. They hastened there on foot from all the towns and arrived at the place before them. When he disembarked and saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd;
and he began to teach them many things.

Question for Children: How do you keep Sunday as a day of rest?

Question for Youth:  Jesus was moved with pity for the people who were gathered. Who are the people you are moved with pity for? What can you do to help them?

Question for Adults: Why is rest important, and how do you make sure you get enough of it in your own life?
