You’re Invited to the Party. How do You Respond?
How do you respond to an invitation to a party? Jesus uses the metaphor of a party invitation to talk about a deeper spiritual principle in this week’s Gospel. We’re all invited to the heavenly banquet, which actually begins on earth in the Mass. But how do we respond?
Don’t Like What God or Church Teaching is Asking? This May Change Your Mind.
From the moment that we were called into existence, we received a call to cross the desert of life. And no one can make it without water. Thus, we can summarize our existence with two words: “I thirst.”
From the wailing of birth to the silence of death, we experience an overwhelming urge to satiate this thirst that rumbles in us. Evidently, we not only thirst for water, but also for recognition, affection, for gestures of love: a motherly embrace, a paternal caress, a lover’s glance, a kiss of veneration, or simply a word of salutation.
This thirst, this desire that defines us is healthy, good, and beautiful. The challenge is to discern what is it that really satisfies our desire and where this desire is leading us.
