Click here to download and listen to this homily (14 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, AK. Jesus says each of us, "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 yourselves. For my yoke is easy and my burden light." Is is our pride or our sinfulness, or both, that keep us from seeking rest in the Lord? Go to confession this week and you will find rest.
