TAKE A BREAK – REST WITH JESUS!

TAKE A BREAK – REST WITH JESUS!

Exhaustion can be fatal if left untreated. Complete exhaustion is a condition that causes an extreme decrease in energy. It generally stems from stress and various diseases, such as cancer. Complete exhaustion is often caused by mental stress, rather than physical exertion. Mood swings and fatigue are also signs of exhaustion. Since the dominant cause of exhaustion is stress, relaxation exercises such as yoga and anger management are prescribed treatments. In other words, we should rest. The same is true spiritually when we become exhausted with the things of life, we should rest in prayer with the Peacemaker, Jesus the Christ. Take a break! Rest in Jesus.

When do You Rest?
The Catholic Catechism Teaches that Sunday is a Day of Rest.

2168 The third commandment of the Decalogue recalls the holiness of the Sabbath: “The seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the LORD.

2173 The Gospel reports many incidents when Jesus was accused of violating the Sabbath law. But Jesus never fails to respect the holiness of this day. He gives this law its authentic and authoritative interpretation: “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” With compassion, Christ declares the Sabbath for doing good rather than harm, for saving life rather than killing. The Sabbath is the day of the Lord of mercies and a day to honor God. “The Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.”
