Twenty-Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 11 October 2020
Isaiah 25:6-10a. Psalm 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6. Philippians 4:12-14, 19-20. Matthew 22:1-14.
Don’t Kill the Messenger. We have another Kingdom of God/Heaven parable today. It is about being gracious and prepared. Who, in a right mind, would snub a gracious invitation to a feast? Who, in a right mind, would kill the messenger? It happened to Jesus. We should not be surprised when it happens to us in little or big ways. Still, we must announce: “Come to the feast, come to the Kingdom.” The required wedding garment in this gospel feast reminds us, who live in this Kingdom of God, to always imagine we wear our baptismal cloths; and, thus, always remember to act as faithful disciples.
- What Good News will I proclaim this week?
- What good deed will I do?
- Whom will I invite to do some baptism-inspired activity with me?
