Reflection for Wednesday December 10, Second Week of Advent; Matthew 11:28-30

Gospel: Matthew 11:28-30
Jesus said to the crowds: “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:
Who among us are not feeling weary and burdened by the weight of the problems that we carry? We are all burdened by this world yet these burdens the we carry are miraculously made light. When we learn to submit it to Jesus and when we invite Jesus to help us carry it.

Why do we endure to carry the burden of someone we love or to suffer for someone we love? This is for the reason that we are already yoked or made one with this person that we love. For example, in married life if your spouse is sick you would endure and love to take care of your spouse.

This is for the reason that Jesus bonded the two of you to become one through the Sacrament of Matrimony.  Remember some words of your marriage vows? In sickness and in health you will not part until death!

If marriage made you one with your spouse, through your Baptism you became one with Jesus or you are already yoked with Jesus until eternity. Let us therefore always go to Jesus we who are all burdened by the difficulties of life for we will always find healing and strength in HIM.

Do you always go to Jesus by visiting Him in the Adoration Chapel? Do you always go to Jesus through Holy Mass? Do you always go to Jesus through your prayers? - Marino J. Dasmarinas
