As we return to the ordinary season of the year, we are given a most magnificent Gospel to land on, in Matthew 11:25-30. This gospel passage is unusual in the first three Gospels that rarely take us into the inner life of Jesus in his prayer to the Father. Here we are plunged into this moment when Jesus rejoices in the possibility that those around him might be able to share in the incredible intimacy that he shared with the Father – a secret that the inarticulate infants are able to grasp, but which is hidden from the learned and clever.
If we wish, this secret is available to us as well – especially if we labour and are overburdened and want to finally find our place of rest.
