Livestream of Vigil Mass for the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time – February 6, 2021

“Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed…He told them, ‘Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also.  For this purpose have I come.’”
                                                               – Mark 1:35, 38

In today’s Gospel reading we see a perfect example of stewardship.  Jesus gives His time to do all that God wishes – healing the sick and preaching.  But before He begins, Jesus makes time to be alone with God in prayer.  It is through prayer, spending time with God, that we find the strength to do what He wishes us to do.  Be sure to find time every day to be with God.
