Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
July 3, A.D. 2005
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
"Come to me ... learn from me, and you will find rest. My yoke is easy, and
my burden light."
The beckon to find rest by taking the yoke of the meek and humble-hearted
One is the gift of sharing His work.
"Learn from me."
The all-powerful, all-mighty Creator, in perfectly humility and meekness
with His created ones, wills to share with them His own" yoke". He reveals
the rest that is "Peace" when one is yoked with the Lord.
Msgr. Bill Pickard preached a homily explaining the yoke for oxen fits them
comfortably, perfectly, allowing each of the two who share it to be guided
as one. Never straying from a path, their eyes focus forward as they move
perfectly with one another, thanks to the perfectly fitted yoke. Indeed the
sharing of this yoke makes their burden light.
"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of
heart." Espoused as His bride, the Church, indeed each soul, takes up the
yoke of our daily cross, willing in meekness and humility, to join our wills
with His perfect Will. Perfectly, the two become One. Conforming one's whole
self to the Lord, one learns to remain united with the Lord in mind, soul
and strength. One finds that this perfectly fitted yoke, the cross of our
wills conformed with His, keeps one from straying from the path to Life. The
yoke is Light in shared union with onešs God who walks every step of the way
to Life with us.
grace us with conformed wills
to remain yoked with you.
- Mary Williams
