they refused to come

August 22, 2019 8:13 am

“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.” (MT 22; 2-3)

God, Who is love, and is love, can be rejected. In love there is no space for pressure, for force and for violence. Love is based on freedom, respect and gentleness. We are invited to be with Him, to celebrate “a wedding feast for his son,” and we can “refuse to come.” Our Lady helps us to answer to God’s invitations and helps us to recognize God’s will for us.

“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.” (Gospel Acclamation)
