You Are a Burden

Fr. Mike Schmitz

We are all a burden, including Fr. Mike, but we are burdens worth carrying.

Many of us choose to deal with our problems on our own because we don’t want to bring our mess into other people’s lives.

But the very nature of love is to sacrifice for others, and we cannot have any meaningful relationships in our lives if we do not share our burdens and bear some of the weight of other people’s burdens.

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
