Ezekiel 36:23-28; Psalm 51; Matthew 22:1-14

Do more than show up

Those invited didn’t show up. So Jesus invites the poor, the homeless, the rejected, the outcasts, the left out to his banquet. They showed up. Maybe it was because they were really hungry and knew they needed something? Then one poor guest gets thrown out. Pretty tough. Maybe though it’s because he didn’t try to meet the minimum standards of attendance at the banquet. He was there wasn’t he? Wasn’t that enough? Friends of mine argue it’s enough to go to Mass and that is all you need to do to be a follower of Christ. Hope they hear this gospel today.
