FROM OUR EDITORS—July 5, 2020 – 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that when we trust him, things will be easier. He compares us to oxen being yoked together. Old oxen are yoked with young ones to teach them how to avoid pitfalls and injury. When we trust Jesus, he will teach us the way to go.

Being yoked with Jesus makes the best team! It’s when we try to go it alone that we struggle and get ourselves into trouble. In times of difficulty—and there are bound to be a few difficulties even in the “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer”—all we need to do is call on Jesus. He promises to teach us and give us rest.
