Jesus begins to rest with the Apostles but ends up preaching to the people

Saturday of the Fourth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mk 6:30-34
The apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”
Gospel's Commentary

Jesus’ rest time becomes a time to serve: He listens to His Apostles and attends to the people. And you?
