Fatigue often accompanies the struggle for renewal.
Choosing to go against "the grain", against an established pattern, calls to the deepest parts of our hearts.
Rest, a coming away from daily demands and routines, is a requirement for growth. There is no virtue in refusing to accept and embrace a time of renewal and refreshment.
Jesus, the God-Man, regularly stepped away from the crowds for a time of prayer and quiet reflection.
In this practice, I will follow my leader.
