FAITH BOOK

28th SUNDAY (A) OCTOBER 15, 2017

Isaiah 25: 6-10; Psalm 23; Philippians 4: 12-14, 19-20; Matthew 22: 1-14

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Isaiah reading:

 

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will provide for all peoples,

A feast of rich food and choice wines.

 

Reflection:

 

What Isaiah promised, Jesus has provided for us, a rich meal for all people. During his lifetime Jesus showed preference at his table for the poor, despised and unacceptable. They were his favored guests. We who gather at this Eucharist, the table of "rich food and choice wine," must also welcome the least, not only to our table, but also into our lives, as Jesus did.

 

So we ask ourselves:

 

As we look around at our worshiping community:

 

  • Who is at the table with us? Is our assembly an inclusive one?

  • Who are not represented among us? Why?
