St. Bonaventure

Matthew 11:28-30

The rest that Jesus promises the weary is not the rest of idleness. Rather, Jesus offers the deep calm that comes from a new perspective and a fresh involvement in life. When we take up the yoke of Jesus, we find the center of our lives shifting from ourselves to others. Our concerns are now focused on others rather than ourselves. This is the secret to overcoming weariness and oppression.
