Prayer of the Day:

You are great, O God, and greatly to be praised. You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until
they rest in you. Grant that we may believe in you, call upon you, know you, and serve you, through your Son,
Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Gospel:

Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30

‘But to what will I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market-places and calling to one
another, “We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we wailed, and you did not mourn.” For John
came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, “He has a demon”; the Son of Man came eating and
drinking, and they say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners!” Yet wisdom
is vindicated by her deeds.’ At that time Jesus said, ‘I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because
you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes,
Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one
knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the
Son chooses to reveal him. ‘Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will
give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will
find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’

Blessing:

May God, whose power working in us can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine, grant you the gifts of faith and hope. Almighty God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless you now and forever. Amen.
