FAITH BOOK

28th SUNDAY (A) October 11, 2020

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

by 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 Gospel reading:

 

The king said to his servants... “Go out, therefore, into the main roads and invite to the feast whomever you find.

The servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found,

bad and good alike, and the hall was filled with guests.

 

Reflection:

 

Like those from the main roads invited to the feast, our church is also a mixture of the “bad and good alike” and so the second part of the parable challenges us. How are we changing our lives in response to the invitation to the wedding God has given us? Do we realize the gift we have received?  If all are guests, none meriting the invitation, but brought in by grace, then how could we Christians continue to separate and divide ourselves according to race, gender, country of origin, language, newcomers and old timers, well dressed and the poor?

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What is our attitude and disposition towards other “guests” in our community of faith?

  • How can I welcome them to share in the good things God has given us?
