St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 25

"Come to me, you who are overburdened." (Matthew 11: 28)

In Jesus' time many people felt overburdened by the demands of the Law, especially those on the margins of society, like shepherds. Jesus wants to show them that the law of God is about love. When life is burdensome, Jesus invites us to turn to him and seek solace in his company.

Compassionate God, we pray for all who feel weighed down at this time of year. Help them to turn to you and give them your comfort. Amen.
