Taste and See: fresh hope…

Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to mere children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

‘Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.’

Matthew 11:25-30

The Gospel heard at Mass on Sunday, the 14th of the Year, offers hope and consolation.

What it does not promise is the end of all struggle and strife!

These things continue likely enough, but we will not be alone in them, and they will not prove pointless. We are promised faithful companionship by the Lord – a promise that reduces stress and strain and offers a resting place, and encouragement as we move forward with him, in him, to him…

The Lord offers us a second wind, a wind that is the Spirit of God. We are not left alone, abandoned, and never will be…
