Second Week of Advent
Memorial of Saint Ambrose, bishop and doctor of the Church
Dear my friends,
Here is the Gospel for us today according to St. Matthew 11:28-30
Jesus said to the crowds: “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.”
This is the Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.
JESUS Christ says, “Come to me… and I will give you rest”. Jesus Christ is the Son of God has become man and stays with us all. He invites us to come to him.
How can we accept his invitation? How can we come to him? How can we attain what our souls have longed for all the days of our existence? Jesus Christ himself gives us the answer. We can come to him by taking his yoke upon us and learn from him, for he is meek and humble of heart.
In the Perpetual Adoration of the Eucharist we adore Jesus Christ who humbles himself so that he can first come to us at the Eucharist. There we come to him and take his yoke. We also turn to him with our heavy burden of selfishness and unrestrained passions.
Let’s pray: Lord Jesus Christ, you invite us to come to you and you will give us rest. Help us to come to you and to take your yoke upon us. May we grow in goodness of heart so we can radiate your goodness to those around us now and forever. Amen.
