Fr. Allen celebrated mass this morning, and the first half of the gospel reading was Jesus healing Peter’s mother-in-law. The second half told how Jesus left the house before dawn to go and pray, and when they found him, told him everyone was looking for him, Jesus told them that it was time to go teach in the other towns.
For some reason it struck me that the need to leave that Jesus felt had to have come from his prayer. In other words, he went outside to pray, and hears that it’s time to move on. I know that the gospel chronology is not actual, or even important, but it is interesting that Jesus answers the apostles with a non sequitur.
I have a feeling this will be my lectio text for the day.
On another note, my coughing is much better, and I have energy. Yay!
