14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Go and Proclaim: Coming to GOD has its benefits, go for it

First Reading: Song of Solomon 2:8-13

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 45:7-9,10-12,13-15

Second Reading: Romans 7: 21-8:1

Gospel Reading: Matthew 11: 16-19,25-30

For this Sunday’s homily, Fr. Jun reminded us that we should not quit, but we should learn how to rest with God. In life, it is normal for us to become tired. However sometimes, we could not identify if that tiredness is physical, mental, or spiritual. He also emphasized some symptoms of spiritual tiredness, and they are the following:

*Having a hard time believing God’s promise;

*If we are troubled with how to start in prayer;

*If we become people-focused;

*If we settle rather than to seek more;

*If we stay in our comfort zones;

*If we want control;

*If we choose convenience than to seek our destiny;


*If we are always angry;


*If we tend to isolate ourselves from others;

*Insecurity; and

*Lack of self- control [discipline]

When we experience these things, we are experiencing spiritual tiredness or weariness. Come then to God. Jesus promises that He will give us peace and rest.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30
