Come to Me

In the sultry heat of this mid-summer morning, we ponder the words of Jesus in today's Gospel, "Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest." And we recall the words of our Cistercian father, Blessed Guerric, "To come to the living water of Christ, you do not need merit, all you need is thirst." So many, too many are burdened and tired and thirsty, may they and we find in Christ Jesus our true refreshment.
