Jesus said, ‘Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-burdened, and I will give you rest.’ The burden Jesus is talking about is not just that you have bills to pay, tasks to accomplish, relationships to maintain, or a busy schedule to keep.
He is speaking about the burden we feel when we see injustice all around us; the burden we experience when the rights of our brothers and sisters are trampled down and innocent blood is shed. He is speaking of the labor we engage in to correct these injustices and build a Culture of Life.
Blessed are those who mourn — who mourn over evils like abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia.
Indeed, we shall all be comforted, for the Lord will bring justice to the earth.
