Gospel: Mt 11:28-30
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart; and you will find rest. For my yoke is easy; and my burden is light.
We conceived, we had labor pains, but we gave birth to the wind Isaiah poignantly writes, “We conceived… but we gave birth to the wind. We have not brought salvation to the land.” Despite the brilliance of the human mind, he humbly recognizes our incapacities. We invent new technologies, but we also develop more efficient ways to kill one another. We craft laws anchored on moral righteousness, but we allow uncivility and barbarism to exterminate the weak. We forge international treatises, but we collectively destroy mother earth. We are foolish to think that the modern world has no need for God. More and more we need God to save us from ourselves.
