Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus’ Compassionate Love: In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures us that His Compassionate Love will comfort, and give us courage and hope to continue to persevere in our faith.  Ponder on, “In times of painful challenges; do we persevere in the Spirit, or do we allow our emotions to draw us away from God our Father’s Will and Ways?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 11:25-30

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.’
