St Bonaventure, B.D.

Exodus 3:1-6, 9-12 Psalm 103, Matthew 11:25-27


In his prayer of gratitude, Jesus is comparing belief based on ideas about God, and the simple knowing of God in the heart. On our own journey, we know how head and heart work together. The head has words. The heart has no words, only feeling. The head gives us structures, information, valuable guidance to the heart space, but this is not a substitute for the heart’s experience of God’s love. Church teaching always directs us towards the path from the head to the heart. We call that path devotion.
