FAITH BOOK

14th SUNDAY (A) JULY 5, 2020

Zechariah 9: 9-10; Psalm 145; Romans 8: 9, 11-13; Matthew 11: 25-30

By Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

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 my yoke is easy, and my burden light.

 

Reflection:

 

Shall we accept the yoke Jesus is offering? One thing we sense from Jesus is that his yoke is not meant to be oppressive. St. Paul says it will lead us to freedom. When we accept Jesus’ yoke we also receive him as our full-time helper, our "yoke partner." Which explains how Christians were able to accomplish enormously difficult and seeming impossible tasks, even martyrdom, in Jesus’ name.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What parts of my life would I identify as carrying the "yoke of Jesus?"

  • How do I experience Jesus helping me carry that yoke?
