FIRST READING: Zech. 9: 9-10 "See how your king comes to you;
he is victorious, he is triumphant, humble and riding on a donkey."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 145 "I will bless your name for ever, O God my king."

SECOND READING:
Rom. 8: 9, 11-13 "If by the spirit you put an end to the misdeeds of the
body, you will live."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
See Mt. 11: 25 "Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have
revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom."

GOSPEL: Mt. 11: 25-30
"I am gentle and humble of heart."


FOCUS: "Shoulder my yoke and learn from me for I am gentle and humble of
heart." Jesus calls us to come to him, to be like him.


REFLECTION: I think it best that a man should have a little bit of all the
virtues. Therefore, get up early every day and acquire the beginning of
every virtue and every commandment of God. Use great patience, with fear and
long-suffering, in the love of God, with all the fervor of your soul and
body. Exercise great humility, bear with interior distress: be vigilant and
pray often with reverence and purity of speech. When you are despised do not
get angry; be at peace, and do not render evil for evil. Do not pay
attention to the faults of others, and do not try to compare yourself with
other. Live by the cross, in poverty, in voluntary spiritual asceticism,
in fasting, penitence and tears, in discernment, in purity of soul, taking
hold of that which is good.
John the Dwarf

The heart is a small vessel, but all things are contained in it: God is
there, the angels are there, and there also is life and the Kingdom, the
heavenly cities and the treasures of grace. †
St. Makarios of Egypt


...the closer we come to God the simpler we become.
St. Thйrиse of Lisieux


I am gentle and humble of heart


APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: It bears repeating: "Come to me
(wide-armed gesture here), all you who are weary and find life burdensome,
and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon your shoulders and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble of heart. Your souls will find rest, for my yoke
is easy and my burden light."
Love God, and love one another, and you will be much happier than if you
harbor revenge. Best to love one another humbly, to be merciful. It's
easier. The Eucharist is our strength.

General Intercessions—
Introduction: Let us pray with humility, simplicity and confidence to God
our Father, who lives for ever and is all powerful:
• For the holy Church of God: that the
Lord guide and protect it;
• For all peoples of the world: that the Lord unite them in peace and
harmony;
• For all our sisters and brothers in need: that the Lord assist them;
• That our community may have the faith and strength to bear witness to
Christ's presence;
• And may God give me the strength and wisdom to be humble and gentle, with
everyone.
Eucharistic Prayer: Fourth
Invitation to the Lord's Prayer: With God there is mercy and fullness of
redemption; let us pray as Jesus taught us to pray:
Concluding Rite—
Prayers over the people:
Twenty-fourth

Faith Formation
"I am gentle and humble of heart," said Jesus. Are you gentle and humble
of heart? Or are you proud and arrogant? Do you think you are better than
other people, such as women, or men, such as Africans or Hispanics, such as
poor and uneducated folks? Are you more deserving? Do you like to exert your
authority, to throw your weight around, to assert yourself?
"I am gentle and humble of heart," said Jesus. He calls us to be like him,
he does not call on us to judge or rule or punish.
Do you think you are cute? Are you over the age of six? God save us from
people who think they are cute.

Children's Liturgy
of the Word
What did Jesus mean, "... what you have hidden from the learned and the
clever you have revealed to the merest children." He meant children are
humble. They love with their whole hearts and souls. It's not until we get
big and smart that we lose our humility and begin to think we are hot stuff.
Children love and forgive. Some adults get all puffed up with their own
importance and forget to do what Jesus told them to do: be humble and
gentle, like Him.
