Come to me, all you who are weary or burdened, and I will give you rest

Matthew 11:28-30
 
Jesus invites us to lay down our burdens and come to him for rest.
 
We create many of our own burdens when we are imprisoned in fear, resentment, anger and anxiety.  The teaching of Jesus and his new law of love offers another kind of wisdom for life, and offers freedom from our own bondage.
 
His healing presence in the Sacrament of Reconciliation softens our inner reactions and gives us peace and hope.  When we come to Jesus in the Eucharist he gives himself as heavenly food that satisfies the deepest hungers of our heart.
 
We learn to be united to Jesus and to be like him in his gentleness and humility.  Coming to Jesus refreshes our hearts and makes them like his.
 
Lord Jesus, attract me to yourself.  Teach me to be still before you, to look upon your gentle, humble face.
