Readings: Is 25:6-10a. Phil 4:12-14, 19-20. Mt 22:1-14
From time to time we’re humbled by the so many gifts and powers that God has given us. Take free will, for example. The fact that each person is, generally, a free moral agent able to make their own choices regarding what they want to do or not to do. And that even God doesn’t take this power away.
And this happens lots of times in life, and in society. We’re invited to living well with others, we choose selfishness. We’re invited to peace and harmony, we choose war and discord. We’re invited to the Greatest Feast, and we choose lesser and unfulfilling pleasures. When we choose to attend, we must remember that attendance requires a certain preparation and disposition. We must choose this too.
May Jesus Christ grant us the grace to live in such a way that we’ll be admitted to the Eternal Feast.
