The Calling of St. Matthew - Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

What ever his personal faults, Caravaggio was one of the most amazing painters ever! We have a small print of this on our wall in our room. It is a good constant reminder of how we are called and what we are called from, besides being a beautiful painting.

Thanks for stopping by,
