BEARING BURDENS (Mt 11:25-30): 06 July 2008 (Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time)
In his bestselling book, The Road Less Traveled, M. Scott Peck drops a line that makes you feel like dropping his book. In the very first sentence, he declares quite simply and bluntly: “Life is hard.”
Now, tell me: Who wants to be reminded about that? I don’t know about you, but that’s one truth I’d rather not deal with. Of course that doesn’t change the fact that life is, in fact, hard–and we know it. That’s probably why Peck’s book became a No. 1 bestseller over twenty five years ago and continues to be read today–its dire and ominous opening notwithstanding!
