TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Come to me,

all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens,

and I will give you rest.

.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me;

for I am gentle and humble in heart,

and you will find rest for your souls.

For my yoke is easy,

and my burden is light.”

REFLECTION…

.

Our Lord calls everyone to come to Him.

We all find things difficult in one way or another

and the history of souls bears out the truth of these words of Jesus.

.

Only the Gospel can fully satisfy

the thirst for truth and justice which sincere people feel.

Only Jesus, our Lord and Master,

can truly soothe, reassure and encourage the troubled soul.

.

QUOTE…

.

"[Jesus’] attitude towards us

is one of invitation, knowledge and compassion;

indeed, it is one of offering, promise,

friendship, goodness, remedy of our ailments;

He is our comforter;

indeed, our nourishment, our bread, giving us energy and life."

.

– Pope Paul VI

.

.

"Any other burden oppresses and crushes you,

but Christ’s actually takes weight off you.

Any other burden weighs down,

but Christ’s gives you wings."

.

– St. Augustine
