In today’s readings, Jesus, reveals to us just how powerful, peaceful and loving the relationship between the Father and the Son really goes.
Foreshadowing this revelation, the prophet Zechariah describes a powerful king who will be humble, just and meek. He will banish the weapons of war and bring peace to the ends of the earth.
Together, Paul and Matthew, tell us that when we live according to the spirit and not to the flesh, we will break the yoke of death. Living in the spirit is to truly take the yoke of Jesus upon our shoulders. This yoke is a relationship of total communion between us and Jesus; and thru Jesus, the Father, which is the true source of peace, justice and happiness.
