Gospel for the Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time—Matthew 11:25-30
“At that time Jesus exclaimed: ‘I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to little ones. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him. 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.’
Remain in Jesus’ presence, letting his message rest in you.
What part strikes you?
Spend some time getting to know this Jesus.
Heritage word—“Recollect yourselves in the holy presence of the good God.”
