Come to Me, All You Who Are Weary

In today's Gospel Jesus asks us to approach Him, esp. those of us who find life burdensome (Mt 11:25-30) . And in Him we shall find refuge and solace from what ails and afflicts us.

But have we ever asked ourselves why we are burdened with life? A priest who gave a brief homily on this passage said that we are burdened precisely because we try to own everything. We find life heavy because we carry it by ourselves. We have so identified with our works, our relationships, our human projects, so to speak, that we forget to put Christ into the picture.

And when everything gets so heavy, then we look for someone or something to lift it up for us. But most often than not, we fail and are frustrated. During these days, when we feel that the burden we are carrying is getting heavier, it might be prudent to ask: "Have I excluded Christ in my life?"

    People need to wake up and realize there is more to this life than our day-to-day existance. God has a plan for each and every one of us! He loves us so much!

    May God bless you in your ministry!

    burden is a person's inflicted liability. self-absorbtion is the root of self-pity, in a way makes one's burden heavier. But once one let go of his own self and allow God to control his life, it will make one's life bearable.
