Today’s gospel reading is simple and profound:
“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)
Are you burdened?
Do you need rest?
Jesus invites you today to walk beside him in order to lighten your load:
- Yoke yourself to him. He is the stronger of the pair, and as such, will teach you how to carry your burden.
- Carry it with meekness, humility and love.
- Turn to him when it feels heavy and say, “Jesus, I trust in You.” Only then will it become light.
St. Camillus, pray for us! Anne
