Today there is a delightful sense of joy and encouragement in our Readings. We hear the words ‘Rejoice heart and soul … shout with gladness’. Our Gospel too offers us a lifeline: ‘Come to me and I will give your rest.’ Jesus is willing to stand beside us and walk with us on the journey of life. He is with us, sharing in our suffering, carrying us in ways that we may not yet recognize.
Lord Jesus, you invite us to take your hand and walk with You.
Help us to respond in faith to Your invitation.
