Thus says our Lord Jesus Christ: “No man can come to me, unless my heavenly Father draws him to me” (Jn 6:44); and “Him who comes to me, I will not cast out” (Jn 6:37). “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Mt 11:28-30).
