God requests the pleasure of your company

Gospel Reflection for Sunday October 11th

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this Sunday’s gospel, we hear another parable – this time about preparing for and attending a great wedding feast at the invitation of the King. It is through how we live our daily lives and treat others that we prepare for the fullness of God’s Banquet and Kingdom. Each day may we do our best to be genuine, compassionate, kind, humble, gentle, patient and loving. Why? Because Jesus requests the pleasure of our company at meal to be given in his honour.

Please enjoy my gospel reflection for this Sunday.

With every blessing,

Br Michael Moore OMI
