‘I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are wise and very beautiful; but I have never read in either of them: Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden. ‘
– St. Augustine
Christ does not simply offer us words of wisdom, polished rhetoric, or answers to profound philosophical problem. He offers us an easy yoke and a light burden and the love of a friend – and that is worth more than all the wise sayings and profound philosophical thoughts the world could ever offer.
