Jesus' "Come to Me"

Today's Gospel was the one that most inspired our Founder, Bl. James Alberione, so my ears always perk up when it is proclaimed. For Alberione, the key word was "all": Come to Me, ALL of you. Hence, the Pauline mission. It is something I am especially praying over right now, because a hundred years ago, media were rather exclusive, and were the clear way to go to reach as many of that "all" as possible. That is still the case, except that now media are "all" over the place, and most middle and upper class people (in this country, I mean) have more access to communications technology than we members of the Pauline Family. Yet we are still supposed to get that invitation out, "Come to Me, all of you." It is actually the "to Me" that is the most important part!
