Jesus said to the crowds:The homily:
“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.”
If we have any burdens that are too heavy, or if the yoke isn't easy, maybe it isn't Jesus' burdens, or his yoke that we're carrying.Yep a one sentencer. And it wan't our Novice Master either (who specializes in ... um ... pithy homilies :-)). The funny thing is, I was thinking on the same lines as I heard the Gospel proclaimed. I wonder what the Lord wants me to hear ... ?
[Incidentally, at the Confirmation class I assist with, this past Sunday, I'd brought up these lines. None of the teens knew what a yoke was, however. Oy!]
