ABSTRACT
The article presents a meditation on the Biblical lectionary passage selected for July 22, 2012, focusing on Mark 6:30-34, 53-56. Attention is given to the way in which Jesus Christ maintained himself by periodically going off away from the crowds that followed him in order to pray. Extensions are then made suggesting that all Christians should follow the same example for their own physical and spiritual well-being.
