Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Sabbath

We hear an affirmation from Jesus of the need for Sabbath; not only a time for rest, but a time for rest with God. If you have ever been on a pilgrimage, you will know that the time immediately following the journey is a one of rest, recollection, and especially remembering:  a time to unpack and then put the pieces back together again, in order to see the complete picture, to find meaning, to integrate the experience into your life, and to share that experience with Jesus in prayer.

-Br. Jim Woodrum, SSJE
