OUR LITURGY

Today’s readings weave a message about the importance

of each person’s gifts. Isaiah announces that the veil of

death has been destroyed. Paul emphasizes the importance

of the gift of kindness. Jesus’ parable of the wedding feast

warns that we must be attired in willingness, generosity,

and belief in those gifts that we have to offer.

while many are invited not all will make it to the

table, because they refuse to fully accept the

invitation and dress properly. How do we dress

properly for the banquet, how do we fully accept the

invitation? The answer is the Gospel-clothe yourself

in the Gospel, have a true faith in Jesus and be open

to the will and the power of the Holy Spirit! We must

have a willingness to put God first and a desire to

seek the forgiveness of our sins when we fail to do

so. These are the proper wedding clothes, and we

have all been given the proper clothes, freely, on

the day of our Baptism. We keep them in good

order through our prayers, participation at Mass, and

receiving the Eucharist and the other Sacraments of

the Church. We must be on guard not to get so

caught up in this world that we are like those who

were first invited to the banquet in today’s Gospel.

How many times have we said no to God, or maybe

told God that we are too busy or had someplace

seemingly more important to go? Something

worthwhile to contemplate and hopefully something

we can remedy through Christ and the help of our

brothers and sisters who are the Church.

This week our Level 8 young people take the next

step on their journey toward Confirmation as they go

on retreat and are given the opportunity to celebrate

the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Please keep them

in your prayers.

Next Saturday our St. Joseph’s School Home

School Association will sponsor their Annual Fall

Craft Fair. Please come out and see all that has to be

offered and help support our school. See details in

this bulletin.

On Saturday October 29, 2005, we will have

our Fall Anointing of the Sick Mass at 10:30 AM.

All who are dealing with illness, the effects of old

age, or who are about to undergo surgery or major

medical testing should take advantage of the

wonderful sacraments of Anointing and Eucharist.

We

celebrate this special Mass twice in the course of the

year in the Fall and Springtime. If, however, there is

an emergency, or you are about to go into the

hospital please call the rectory or speak to one of the

priests of the parish.

God bless you always!

Fr. Mike

“But when the king came in to meet the guests,

he saw a man there not dressed in a wedding

garment. Then the king said to him, ‘My friend,

how is it that you came in here without a wedding

garment?’ But he was reduced to silence. Then the

king said to his attendants, ‘Bind his hands and

feet, and cast him into the darkness outside, where

there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.’ Many

are invited, but few are chosen.”

What is Jesus saying to us now through this

parable? Last weekend, Jesus criticized the leadership

of Israel and told them that they would be replaced by

new leaders who would be guided by the Holy Spirit

and work for the coming of the Kingdom of God.

Today’s parable continues with the same theme, only

it is expanded to include all of the people not just the

leaders. We see this in the story of those who were

invited to come to the wedding feast, but refused to

come because they thought that business and other

things in life were more important. So the invitation

was withdrawn to those who were “chosen,” and the

servants were sent out to call others to the feast-both

good and bad alike. Now all are invited, the good and

bad, but when the man comes into the wedding

banquet, not properly dressed, he is thrown out into

the darkness. He is not just thrown out, he is bound

hand and foot, and we are left with the question, why

is the king (Jesus) being so cruel? After all, he was

invited, wasn’t he? Would Jesus suggest that someone

be thrown out just because he was not wearing the

right clothes? Well yes, but as usual there is more

here than meets the eye.

The one, who shows up at the banquet without the

proper clothes, is just like the ones who refuse to come

to the banquet in the first place. The improper clothes

show that he comes to the banquet without properly

preparing for it. But, you may say, he is probably

poor and cannot afford the right clothes, so why

should he be punished? Well to answer the question it

should be remembered that the day’s custom was that

the proper clothes were always provided for those who

could not afford them. So, whether he was rich or

poor everything he needed for the banquet was

provided for him, and yet he refused to come properly

dressed.

The wedding banquet is the Kingdom of God and

the banquet is the Great Eschatological Feast (the end

of time), and God the Father, through His Son calls all

to come to the banquet. However, as we are told,

Stewardship

In today’s second reading, St Paul thanks the Philippians

God truly cannot be outdone in generosity.

We have found a way to help St Joseph and keep those

boards out of the land fill. Drop them off (in a plastic

company who reuses them and gives the parish a bounty for

each. One note, to clear confusion, if it is larger than a fist,

it is not an inkjet cartridge!!!
