Jesus‘ yoke gives rest
Readings: Zech 9,910; Ps 145, 1-2.10-11-13cd-14; Rom 8, 9.11-13; Mt 11, 25-30
The Word of God on the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time A invites us to be attentive the voice of Jesus, the giver of true peace and fulfillment. It may appear to be a contradiction that we are invited to take on a yoke when in our daily lives we are shouldering burdens of different kinds. In order to accept the message of Jesus we ought to adopt the attitude of the little ones to whom God has chosen to reveal His wisdom. He invites us to let go of the burden of our old patterns of life in order to embrace a life of freedom.
