I always post the Gospel on Tuesday or Wednesday in advance of Sunday so that we can meditate on Scripture. This is not an easy Gospel reading this week as it is filled with many ideas and thoughts about our concept and perception of Heaven. The line in the Gospel that inspires me is “The Wedding is ready but those invited are not worthy” I pray that I will be worthy enough to see the Christ that died so that I might live to know and love him eternally
I invite you to share your thoughts and feelings….
The Parable of the Wedding Banquet
22Once more Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying: 2‘The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. 3He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come. 4Again he sent other slaves, saying, “Tell those who have been invited: Look, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready; come to the wedding banquet.” 5But they made light of it and went away, one to his farm, another to his business, 6while the rest seized his slaves, maltreated them, and killed them. 7The king was enraged. He sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. 8Then he said to his slaves, “The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. 9Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.” 10Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests.
