Our Lord uses the example of the Ox and the Ass in today's Gospel in reference to whether he should heal a man with dropsy on the Sabbath. He asks, who among you has an ox or ass which if stuck in a cistern would not try to rescue it? Fr. Bonaventure associates the Ox with the Jews who were burdened with the Law of Moses and the Ass to the Gentiles who were rendered unintelligent through sin. Jesus is the saving Sabbath who through the sacrifice of his own Body and Blood saves us from the cistern of sin. Ave Maria!
