 “Reflection”
​“The Lord is my shepherd,” we sing today, and rich is Psalm 23 in describing what the LORD does for us. The LORD refreshes our souls, guides us on the right way, furnishes comfort and safety in difficult times, gives us sus-tenance to overflowing, and promises a dwelling place forever. Truly, the LORD provides all that we need.

     “The Attentive Gaze Of Jesus

Mark describes the situation in detail. Jesus sets out in the boat with his disciples towards a quiet, out-of-the-way place. He wants to give them his full attention, since they have returned tired after their first evangelizing foray and they’re wanting to share their experience with the Prophet who sent them. But the plan gets frustrated when the people discover his destination and get there before him by running along the shore. When Jesus and his little group arrive at the place, there is a crowd there from the surrounding area. How will Jesus react?
If Mark graphically describes this scene, it is because the disciples in their turn have to learn how to treat the people. In the Christian communities it must be remembered how Jesus was with people who needed him, but who have no one to care about them. «He saw a large crowd; and he took pity on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd, and he set himself to teach them at some length».
The first thing the Gospel notes is Jesus’ compassionate gaze. He doesn’t get irritated that his plans have been interrupted. He lets his gaze linger on them and he’s moved within. He never gets annoyed at the people. His heart senses their disorientation and the abandonment. In the Church we need to learn to gaze at the people as Jesus did, sensing the suffering, the loneliness, the confusion or that many suffer. Compassion doesn’t spring from paying attention to norms or remembering our duties. It awakens in us when we look attentively at those who suffer.
Jesus understands the deepest needs of those people: they go about «like sheep without a shepherd». The teaching they get from the teachers of the Law doesn’t offer them the nourishment they need. They live without anyone truly caring for them, to help them thrive with a suitable spirituality. They have no shepherd to guide and defend them. Moved by compassion, he «set himself to teach them at some length». Calmly, unhurriedly, he patiently sets out to teach them the Good News of God. He doesn’t do it because of obligation. He’s not thinking of himself. He communicates the Word of God to them, moved by the need that they have for a shepherd.
We can’t ignore the fact that many people within our Christian communities want and need more solid instruction than what they’re getting. We shouldn’t accept as normal the religious disorientation within the Church. If quite a few Christians seek to be better fed we need to respond lucidly.. We need shepherds who share with them the message of Jesus.  (Jose Antonio Pagola)
 

Gospel: Mark(6:30-34)

” Quiet retreat; then a return to serve the crowd
 
The apostles gathered around Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves. Now many saw them going and recognized them, and they hurried there on foot from all the towns and arrived ahead of them. As he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.
