14th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME 


 Jesus is calling us “Come to me you all labor and are heavily burdened and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy and my burden light.” When Jesus speaks the word “easy”, he is saying to each of us is, “I have hand-crafted and carved this yoke for us to carry together. I have already smoothed out the rough places and sharp edges- to carry this burden, now lightened, because it is our burden—lean into it with me, don’t fret over it, don’t worry about it, don’t let it wear you down, lean into it with me and you will have rest.” However, we also have to be aware that Jesus, in inviting us to come to Him that He may share  in carrying our burdens, he is also saying “take my burden upon you “. In teaming up with us, He is not only willing to take our burdens upon Himself, He is also asking us to share in carrying his burden. “What,” you may ask, “is Jesus burden?” It is right there in His prayer— to do the will of His Father. That is the work of Jesus. That is the work He asks us to carry along with Him. And that work is as He taught us to pray, that the Father’s Kingdom May come to be on earth as it is in heaven. Each of us has a work, a mission to accomplish that the Lord needs us to do with Him. Too many of us think that our lives are already too busy, too burdensome to take on a ministry, a work, or a burden in the Church. There are great and good works by each of us if the work of Christ is to be accomplished— that the Father’s Kingdom May come to be on earth as it is in heaven. It may seem impossible to you that you have been chosen to perform them. But Jesus is saying, “Yoke yourself to me and the two of us will do them and more.” He needs our feet to take Him where He is not Welcome. He needs our hands to bring His healing touch. He needs our voices to speak His truth. He needs our hearts to make known His compassion and love. This is His burden and because He has carved it out and handcrafted it to each of us, if we dare to take it up with Him, indeed it will be easy and light.

SUNDAY MASS:

As we resume masses in the church , mindful of those who cannot make it due limited seating capacity, Mass will be still live-streamed every Sunday at 10 am in our Parish Website and YouTube page. You can also watch the mass later in the day. If you can, please consider dropping off your church donations in the mailbox, newly installed at Atwater Ave Church entrance door .

POPE FRANCIS’S PRAYER TO MARY :

(For protection from the Coronavirus)

O Mary, you shine continuously in our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the sick. At the foot of the cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Salvation of the Roman people, know what we need. We are certain that you will provide, so that as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to confirm ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us: He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us , through the cross, to the joy of the Ressurrection. Amen.  We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas-we who are put to the test-and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and Blessed Virgin.
