ST. COLUMBA CATHOLIC CHURCH

SAN DIEGO

July 22, 2012 Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Pastor’s Corner ~

COME AND REST A WHILE WITH THE LORD

As we continue with the gospel of Mark, the disciples reported to Jesus all they had done and taught when they came back from their mission. The Lord Jesus, knowing that after such a challenging and tiring mission, the disciples need to rest from their labor, offered them to “get away in a deserted place”.

“Get away”, “Retreat”, “spiritual enrichment”, “rest or break” … everyone needs a place and time to be away from the normal routine of life and be energized by the higher spiritual power. This can be a time to reflect and see where we are going on our journey in life. It’s a time to check ourselves, to know if we are on the right track or if we are on the wrong and have to correct our faults before it’s too late. It was once said that “an un-reflected life is a wasted life”. After a day’s work, we need time to rest, reflect and pray. After a week’s work, we need time to relax and refresh and worship. Even God rested on the seventh day after creating the world (Genesis 2:1-3). St. Dominic lives by the principle of “Ora et Labora” = “Work and Pray”. Work is the fruit of prayer and prayer guides work to find its ultimate meaning and value. Getting away or going on retreat is not only medically and psychologically healthy. It is good for the head, for the heart, for the body and soul. It is also enhances communication and relationship.

Life has many gigantic tasks and concerns that can be overwhelming in the face of our inabilities and insecurities. But life belongs to God and it’s not all our private business. The Creator of life is always available for our need. Resting with the Lord is not a waste of time but a valuable moment to give the Lord time to speak and for ourselves a time to listen. Entrusting everything to Him while doing our best keeps ourselves at peace and allows God to make all things work for the good of all who love Him (Romans 8:28).
