We are currently in a period in our Catholic Church we call Ordinary Time.  During this time we wear green vestments representing a time of growth and hope.  Thinking about this year however I do not think I would use the word “ordinary” to describe it.  This year has been anything but ordinary and this pandemic quarantine is something I never thought I would ever experience in my lifetime.  The COVID-19 has been a tremendous burden for many people.  My oldest son for example has not worked since the middle of April. He is an airline captain and worrying  about when his next regular paycheck will come has been a real burden.

Today Jesus says take my yoke upon you and learn from me … for my yoke is easy and my burden light.  We have our Lord Jesus who broke the yoke of sin and who nourishes us with his Body and Blood to help us with our burdens.  He asks is to trust in him. Of course when we are worried about something, this is easier said than done.

Today as we listen to the “good news”, let him give us rest.  Let his words wash over us today and free us from our burden’s yoke.  Let us follow him with all our being and truly believe that his yoke is light.

DeColores, Deacon Doug
