First Reading: Isaiah 26:7-9, 11, 16-19
"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."
"Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
Who do you go to when you feel exhausted and at the point of giving up? Let me share with you a song that has touched me and really very fitting to today`s gospel. It is entitled Lift Up Your Hands, originally sung by Basil Valdez.
