"Come away by yourselves to a quiet place, and rest." (Mark 6:31)
Forty days are provided to us in the liturgical year to withdraw a short distance into the quiet and reflect on our dependence on God and His providence, and to turn away from distractions that fill our lives with things that are superficial. This reflection teaches us about our smallness and the importance of doing good to others.
God bless you. God bless us. God be with all who seek him with a pure heart, who seek to do good.
