We see Jesus in our gospel as one who heals and one who challenges the power of evil in the world. Then Jesus goes off to a desert place to pray. After a hectic day he felt the need for quiet to ground himself once more. In the busyness of life how do you keep in touch with what is going on inside yourself? How do you keep in touch with God? Where do you find your ‘deserted place’?
Jesus shows himself as a person seeking to break new ground. The disciples want him to continue ministry where he is. He wants to move on.
