Matthew 11:28-30

Jesus invites the people to be his disciples. He offers comfort and consolation. His mission, the fulfillment of God’s law, is not burdensome. He will accompany them on their journey, providing rest in the love and mercy of the Father.

Lord, when I find burdensome the work you call me to, it is because I have lost sight of the meaning, lost sight of you. Saint Lucy, pray for me, that I focus only on the light of Christ.
