Christ invites us to go to him whenever we are laboured or overburdened, and he will give us rest.

14th Sunday of the Year (A)

Zach. 9: 9-10; Psalm 144; Rom. 8, 9: 11-13; Mt. 11: 25 -30

Read: Indeed, we have good reason to be pleased. God is the king who wants peace and not wars amongst nations. Christ invites us to go to him whenever we are laboured or overburdened, and he will give us rest. Through the help of the Holy Spirit in us, God makes us His.

Reflect: Those who harbour God’s Spirit within themselves participate in all that God does in this world. If we are emboldened by God’s Spirit, how good is the part we are playing in our mission to participate in God’s work … a mission of love; to have compassion; mercy; peace; justice?  

Pray: Your prayers are to God; Jesus’ Father and your Father, in Christ, with the power of the Holy Spirit. Christian prayer is Trinitarian.

Act: A person with a meek and humble heart emphasises what is good in other persons. A proud person always concentrates on that which is bad. Practice how you can be with others a person with a meek and humble heart, until this becomes a habit.
