All you who labor and are burdened

July 5, 2020 4:00 am

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” (MT 11: 28-30)

Our Lord knows our difficulties, our complicated worlds, our stresses, and conflicts. He knows perfectly how often we carry yokes; He knows because He loves us. He wants us to come to Him and to bring to Him whatever is difficult, and wants to “give us rest.” The same happens between loving spouses: they protect each other and they comfort each other.

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
