Take my yoke upon you and learn from me

Pro 31:10, 27-28: A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. ...She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.

Heavenly Father, we want to thank you for the women of character and grace, gentleness and fire, love and tenacity, who have helped shape our life - those who have helped us find, follow, and faithfully serve you. We especially thank you for our mother and what she means to me. Also we thank you Lord for our sisters who gives us the presence of your love and sisterly concern. And finally thank you Lord for wife. Please bless them. We ask this in Infant Jesus' name. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 11:28-30)
We know the joy of resting in Jesus' presence and walking every day by him along the path he has shown us. In today’s Gospel, what does the yoke of Jesus refer? The Jews used the picture of a yoke to articulate submission to Lord. When we yoke our lives with Jesus, he also carries our weights with us and gives us his power to follow in his path of love. They spoke of the yoke of the rule, the yoke of the commandments, the yoke of the empire, and the yoke of Lord. Jesus says his yoke is "simple". Yokes were tailor-made to fit the oxen properly. Oxen were yoked two by two. Jesus requests us to be yoked with him, to join our life with his life, our will with his determination, and our heart with his heart. To be yoked with Jesus is to be jointed with him in a relationship of love, trust, and submission. The yoke which Jesus invites us to join is his way of love, grace, and liberty from the power of sin. Do we have faith in God's love and offer to his will and plan for our life?
