The Sunday Word

On Sunday, July 6 we find ourselves on the Fourteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time.

This weekend's Gospel:

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.

A few questions for reflection:

When I'm tired and burdened, where do I find rest?
To what, to whom am I yoked in my life?
What difference would it make in my life
were I to take Jesus' yoke upon me?
