Feast of Kateri Tekakwitha

The first part of today’s reading from Isaiah seems to repeat yesterday’s theme of closeness to God.  Isaiah talks about yearning for God and recognizing that we can do nothing without God.  Jesus then responds by inviting all of us, all who labor and are burdened, to come to Him to find rest.  He yearns for us to come; and, when we do, He takes us in His arms to soothe and console us and grant us His rest and joy in abundance.  Jesus calls us to learn how to be meek and humble of heart from Him.  He will teach us with a process (yoke) that fits us.  The process will be at a time and moment which will match who we are.  It is never too quick or too harsh.  Jesus is the master of compassion.  

Take time to go to Jesus today.  Bring Him all your cares, concerns, worries and wonderment.  Allow yourself to be quiet so that Jesus will be able to come to you, teach you, heal you, and love you.  This will be a great treat.  Respond in love.
