Sunday Gospel Reflection With Fr. Bill Grimm
- July 4, 2014
Fourteenth Sunday of the Year (A)Matthew 11:25-30
25 At that time Jesus exclaimed, 'I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.
26 Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do.
27 Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
28 'Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest.
29 Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.'
The world around me may be in turmoil, but I will be in peace and calm, not because I am apart from the world, but because I am sharing God's deep love for that world.
