Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Lectionary: 100

Mt 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 by Deacon Bruno Schettini, MD

A small child asks a parent: “May I help?” Let us approach the Cross with childlike innocence, and ask Jesus if we can help Him save the world; so the Father will allow us to endure the inevitable sufferings from the world.
