St Bonaventure (M)

Exodus 3:13-20, Psalm 105,
Matthew 11:28-30

Jesus yokes himself with us!

A well-fitted yoke enables oxen to work efficiently and comfortably. This image is of being yoked with Jesus who helps pull our load by sharing His perfect yoke with us. What yoke could fit better? Yoking himself to us, Jesus takes the lead, guiding every step. This is not passivity, but an astounding invitation to unite our efforts with Christ in partnership for mission. The promise of God for being yoked with Christ is rest for our souls, peace, and a lightening of our burdens.
