First Reading: Zechariah 9.9-10

A prophecy about the coming of a king to Jerusalem, who will be just and victorious, but also humble and riding on a donkey. The passage declares that this king will bring peace to the nations and rule over them, and his dominion will extend from sea to sea and to the ends of the earth.

Psalm 145: “I will bless your name for ever, my King and my God”.

Second Reading: Romans 8.9, 11-13

Those who have the Spirit of Christ dwelling within them belong to him and will have life. The passage urges believers to live according to the Spirit and put to death the deeds of the flesh, for those who live according to the flesh will not inherit eternal life.

“Alleluia. Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of thew kingdom. Alleluia.”

Gospel: Matthew 11.25-30

Jesus thanks God for revealing the truth of his teachings to the humble and childlike, rather than to the wise and learned. He invites those who are burdened and weary to come to him and take up his yoke, promising that they will find rest for their souls, for his yoke is easy and his burden light.
