Gospel text (Mt 11:28-30): Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest." Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden 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 things to be done... This is the modern world: lots of activity! And, maybe, little time for those we love, to 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.
