Parables of Jesus: The Wedding Banquet

Parables of Jesus: The Wedding Banquet
Lluís Raventós
Thursday of the Twentieth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mt 22:1-14
“The Kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. He dispatched his servants to summon the invited guests to the feast, but they refused to come."
Gospel's Commentary
Today Jesus presents to us that God who calls on us all, and it seems who many of us are fleeing from. In the end, God even goes "to the crossroads" to make sure that everyone is invited. God is good, patient, merciful ... But, because he is good, he is fair: you cannot enter into His Eternal House unless you are wearing “wedding attire”. -The theme is simple: Heaven is a place of Love. The lazy, the selfish, the rich… are going to be bored in heaven. Even worse, they can’t bear the idea of Heaven!
