16th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Reading I: Jeremiah 23:1-6 II: Ephesians 2:13-18
Mark 6:30-34

30 The apostles returned to Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught.
31 And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.
32 And they went away in the boat to a lonely place by themselves.
33 Now many saw them going, and knew them, and they ran there on foot from all the towns, and got there ahead of them.
34 As he went ashore he saw a great throng, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.

Interesting Details
One Main Point

The disciples of Jesus would be persecuted, but Jesus would lead and feed his people with the help of the disciples.

  1. Do I take time to rest and to bond with other disciples of Jesus, and with Jesus himself?
  2. Who is my shepherd, and do I follow the teaching of my shepherd?
  3. Have I experienced persecution? How does Jesus take care of me?
