Season of Pentecost

"Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while."
(Mark 6:31)

Eight Sunday after Pentecost

Feeding the Five Thousand

Mark 6:30 The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught.
Mark 6:31 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.
Mark 6:32 And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves.
Mark 6:33 Now many saw them going and recognized them, and they hurried there on foot from all the towns and arrived ahead of them.
Mark 6:34 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.

Many Touch Him and Are Made Well

Mark 6:53 When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret and moored the boat.
Mark 6:54 When they got out of the boat, people at once recognized him,
Mark 6:55 and rushed about that whole region and began to bring the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was.
Mark 6:56 And wherever he went, into villages or cities or farms, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged him that they might touch even the fringe of his cloak; and all who touched it were healed.
