Today’s Reflection: Dear Jesus,
I am weary and am carrying a heavy burden like you said,
And at least half of it is plain-and-simply mine –
I’m not this enough
I’m not that enough
I’m too much this
I’m too much that
and what if they find out?!
Jesus, please give me rest.
Replace my burden with yours,
my yoke with yours,
replace my judgment with gentleness
replace my ego’s bigness with humility’s smallness
and help me learn how to rest
knowing my life isn’t about success,
but about us – you, me, my family, my neighbor
and how we complete each other along the way.
Amen. — Fr. Garrett Gundlach, SJ
