“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28)
It is always very pleasant and meaningful to hear this word of the Lord especially on Sundays. Lord’s Day is a day of rest and a day of being with the Lord. On this Sabbath day, our Lord Jesus Christ calls us to be with him and take some rest. We were working hard for the whole week, day and night, and now tired and weak. Jesus knows us better than anyone else. Therefore, he calls us today in a special way to him. The book of revelation says, “He will wipe away all tears from our eyes” (21:4). Therefore, let us go to the church today with all our family members to have the real rest Jesus gives and thank him for the graces we received the last week both physical and spiritual. It is very enriching also to be with the Christian community, the body of Jesus Christ himself and share our faith experience. St. Paul reminds us, “Since you have accepted Christ Jesus as Lord, live in union with him. Keep your roots deep in him, build your lives on him, and become stronger in your faith, as you were taught. And be filled with thanksgiving” (Col 2:6,7).
Have a nice and blissful Sunday to all of you.
