My Reflection for Friday June 27, Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus; Matthew 11:25-30

Gospel: Matthew 11:25-30  
At that time Jesus exclaimed: "I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to little ones. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.

"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 I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light."

Reflection:
Do we want to grow in faith? God requires us only one thing; none other than to have the virtue of humility. Humility means that we trust God like a little child trust his parents. Humility means that we don’t dare question the ways of God in our lives even if HIS ways are sometimes full of trials and hardship.

 We simply bow in submission and follow HIS own will for our lives. However, how would we know the will of God? We must at all times be humble for it’s though a person’s humility that he discerns God’s will for him. A person who is not humble will never know God’s will for him; he will only know his own will for himself.

Who are those who go to Jesus to be relieve of the burdens of this world? Who are those who sincerely ask Jesus to help them carry their heavy loads in this world? Who are those who find their rest in Jesus alone? They all are the humble ones; they go to Jesus in humility and by doing so they find true rest they find someone who will help them find relief from the burdens of this world.

During this Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus let us reflect on Jesus' humble heart. Let us pray that the good Lord will also transform our hearts to become like the humble Sacred Heart of Jesus. For Humility is the gateway to know Jesus deeply and humility is the only means for Jesus to come into our lives.
