Is 26:7-9, 12, 16-19 / Mt 11:28-30

ISAIAH 26:7-9, 12, 16-19
Let the righteous walk in righteousness. You make smooth the path of the just, and we only seek the way of your laws, O Yahweh. Your name and your memory are the desire of our hearts. My soul yearns for you in the night; for you my spirit keeps vigil. When your judgments come to earth, the world's inhabitants learn to be upright. Yahweh, please give us peace; for all that we accomplish is your work. For they sought you in distress, they cried out to you in the time of their punishment. As a woman in travail moans and writhes in pain, so are we now in your presence. We conceived, we had labor pains, but we gave birth to the wind. We have not brought salvation to the land; the inhabitants of a new world have not been born. Your dead will live! Their corpses will rise! Awake and sing, you who lie in the dust! Let your dew fall, O Lord, like a dew of light, and the earth will throw out her dead.

MATTHEW 11:28-30
Come to me, all you who work hard and who carry heavy burdens, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart and you will find rest. For my yoke is good, and my burden is light."

Jesus prayed to the Father: "I praise you because you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned and revealed them to simple people."

Who are these simple people? If we scrutinize the credentials of the apostles, we ourselves would dissuade Jesus from taking them. But these fishermen, farmers, and tax collectors were faithful. They were willing to give up their lives for him. Only St. Paul, a Pharisee, was educated, complex, and subtle. But he was humble and, when he accepted Christ, he changed his way of life. If we look at ourselves, learned and capable of doing many things, would we have the humility of St. Paul?
