Saints December 12th: Our Lady of Guadalupe (Queen of Mexico, Patroness of the Americas and the Philippines)

Gospel text (Mt 11,28-30): Jesus said, «Come to me, all you who work hard and who carry heavy burdens and I will refresh you». Jesus said, «Come to me, all you who work hard and who carry heavy burdens and I will refresh you. 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 good and my burden is light».

“Today Jesus offers us a very good idea. There are times when we feel tired and "weary", i.e., with plenty of work and and things to be done... This is the modern world: lots of activity! And, maybe, little time for those we love, and spend time with them...

–In Christmas God does not come to do many things, but to live with us. To teach us that the weariness of love turns into joy: because to love and be loved is the most beautiful thing in the world.
