First Reading: Isaiah 26:7-9, 12, 16-19
Psalm: Psalm 102:13-21
Gospel: Matthew 11:28-30
28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
God is calling us to come to Him and cast our burdens on Him. Let us not do things by ourselves, as it is only in God's love and mercy that we we can truly find rest, and accomplish everything. When our hearts grow tired and weary, let us come to God and He will always renew us.
