Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time ‘a’

When I became a pastor for the first time, I thought I could make the parish the best and most vibrant parish. I wanted to make the best decisions and to make all people happy. Soon enough, I found out that this was impossible. Not only that, but I was getting burned out, taking care of so many things at once. I didn’t have much time for myself and more importantly, my prayer life suffered too. Then I decided to take it more slowly, to accept the things that I couldn’t change, to be open to criticism, and to make sure that I reserved enough time for my private prayer and retreat. That helped a lot. Mainly I learned that I couldn’t accomplish anything without Jesus. I needed to slow down and to ask Him for help. We all get busy with our daily tasks. However, we can’t forget that Jesus is there to listen to us, to help, and to ease our pain: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”
