null / Credit: Egor Pasko from Moscow, Russia, CC BY 2.0, via Wikimedia CommonsACI Prensa Staff, Jul 19, 2024 / 07:00 am (CNA).In a new pastoral letter, Bishop Ginés García Beltrán of Getafe, Spain, reflects on the meaning of rest during summer vacation, when many families take the opportunity to take time to get away and relax.García points out that "rest is good and necessary." On the human level, this does not consist only of doing nothing but of "giving meaning to what we do" or "doing with tranquility and joy what we usually cannot do."García then poses the direct question: "You, in whom do you rest?" Underlining the personal nature of the question ("I didn't say what gives you rest"), the Spanish bishop reminds us that man's true rest is "in God" as expressed by the psalmist when he said: "My soul rests in God alone." For the prelate, this verse conveys a lesson: "Trust in God opens the way to hope" in such a way that "all my problems, my burdens, my sufferings have ...

Thought of the Day

Matthew 12:6-8

(After the Pharisees accused the disciples of being unlawful on the Sabbath, when they ate the heads of grain in the field) 

I say to you, something greater than the temple is here. If you knew what this meant, I desire mercy, not sacrifice, you would not have condemned these innocent men. For the Son of Man is Lord of the sabbath."
