This week Adrian talks about solitude and the positive possibility it could be in our lives. He wonders how it could fit in such a busy life and discovers the pace of the Lord.
One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place.
After Jesus had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone.
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.”
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God.”
