Reflections with Fr. Mark
Dear Parishioners,

In our readings today, we hear: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”  Our faith journey was never the result of a promise that living our Christian life would be comfortable, easy and without the Cross. 

In fact, I think most of us are a bit tired of the Cross at this moment.  But our Gospel does invite us to give our burdens to Christ.  It invites us to take on the rest that Christ can offer us even in the midst of the Cross.  A yoke is meant to help a pack animal pull a heavy load.  Jesus’ yoke is one of love and that is why it is “lighter” than the typical “loads” you and I choose to carry or allow to burden us.

As we begin this second round of state-ordered shutdowns, I invite you to give this burden to Christ and to take upon yourself His yoke of love.

Pray for me as I do for you.

Be assured of our prayers for you each day as we continue our journey together and apart.
