Blessed are Those Who Vacation for Jesus

  Jesus Christ sent His disciples out to preach the Good News in the villages, two-by-two, and they came back excited about the feats and miracles they had performed, but were also weary from their hard work.  So Jesus said to them,

“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.  So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.”  [Mark 6:31-32, NAB Holy Bible]

My wife and I finally committed to a vacation yesterday, the Feast of the Queenship of Mary.  I had been doubtful before, but Mother Mary seemed to ease the door open for us yesterday to commit.  We found a Catholic country where we can attend Mass, and we are going during a holy season of the year.  It will be our own pilgrimage.

Today, at Mass, I heard these words as I prayed:

Blessed are those who follow Me to a deserted place.”

I had not realized it before, but we did make Jesus Christ a top priority when selecting a vacation spot…and it will be a deserted place for sure!
