Gospel's Commentary
Today, in our modern times, we can see so many souls "running away" from God. They consider tedious and exhausting having to comply with God. And yet, it is the other way around: God invites us to rest in Him. Actually, what wears us out is to pretend to be "god", and taking His place. This is the cause of so many wars and so much misery. We think we can build a world without God, but all we can do is to build a world against man. "Look around: while heathens may be "laughing" (pure laughter) Christians are "smiling" (for they are happy), even being on the Cross.
