Dear Friend in the Lord,
God’s Mercy: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims a divine Mercy that assures us that God’s Heart is filled with compassion for our struggles, pains and tribulations and He will never fail us if we trust Him wholeheartedly, Jesus assures us, “I will give you rest; I am gentle and humble in heart; My yoke is easy and My burden light.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
‘Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.’
