Who’s invited?

October 15, 2017

The readings for today were pretty long, and had multiple paths one could take.  I was sorry, for example, that I couldn’t follow up on the “Many are called, few are chosen” line, and that I had to leave one of my wife’s favorite verses (“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” (Phil 4:13)) for another time.

In my homily today, I chose instead to focus on our status as “the bad and the good alike”, to whom Jesus referred in this parable.  So much is lost on us in the change of time; we don’t get, for example, how that whole wedding invitation thing worked for the people of Jesus’ time (this article does a good job of explaining it).  For a king’s invitation to be blown off was…simply unheard of.

And we receive a similar invitation.  Who’s invited?  We all are.  But…what do we do with the invitation?
