FIRST READING: Is. 25: 6-10 "The Lord will prepare a feast and will wipe away the tears from every cheek."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 23 "In the Lord's own house shall I dwell for ever and ever."

SECOND READING:
Phil. 4: 12-14, 19-20 "I am able to do all things in him who strengthens me."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
See Eph. 1: 17-18 "May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our heart that we might see how great is the hope to which we are called."

GOSPEL: Mt. 22: 1-14
"Whomever you find, invite to the wedding."

FOCUS: We must be spiritually dressed to share in God's saving banquet by living a life in imitation of Christ, loving one another as he loved us.

REFLECTION: "Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ: in all my trials and sufferings you have given me the strenth to stand firm; in your mercy you have granted me a share of eternal glory."
Irenaeus, Greek Prelate

"Holiness is not the luxury reserved for a few favourite persons. All are invited to be holy. I think only holiness will be able to overcome evil and all the sufferings and miseries of the people, and of our own lives. Because we too have to suffer, and suffering is a gift of God if we use it in the right way. The cross must be there , so let us thank God for this."

" Become holy. Each one of us has a capacity to become holy and the way to holiness is prayer.
God is purity himself; nothing impure can come before him. I don't think God can hate, because God is love and he loves us inspite of our misery and sinfulness. He is a loving Father and we have only to turn to him. God cannot hate; God loves because he is love, but impurity is an obstacle to seeing God."
Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"Christ is calling you; the church needs you; the pope believes in you, and he expects great things of you!"
Pope John Paul II

"I am able to do all things in him who strengthens me."

"If thou wish to reach the prefection of love, it befits thee to set thy life in order." St. Catherine of Siena

"Be not preplexed, be not afraid, everything passes, God does not change. Patience wins all things. He who has God lacks nothing; God alond suffices.
Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul."
St. Teresa of Avila
October 15

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduction to the Liturgy: The celebration of the Eucharist is the living sign of God's continuing act of salvation. The whole world has been invited to share in this feast. Let us respond with humble awareness of God's great mercy and love, and in obedience to his commandment that we love one another.
Sample General Intercessions:
Introduction: My sisters and brothers, from this world of uncertainty we look to God who has invited us to the heavenly banquet. Let us pray:
For Christians everywhere, that we be responsive to the word of God and bear witness to the gospel;
Through the grace of God, may we all have the strength we need to work for peace;
O Lord, let us not become complacent in our faith, let us ever be mindful of its awesome sublimity;
For our community and our families who welcome Christ into our lives, that we may learn to perceive God in all people throughout the world.

Preface: Third or Sixth for Sundays in Ordinary Time

Concluding Rite:
Prayers over the People: Eighteenth

Give me the strength, O Lord,
to love as you do, for the benefit of all.

Faith Formation
We are all invited to the banquet. No one is excluded. But some refuse to come and others come ignoring the awesome significance of the invitation. The banquet is eternal life with God. Let us all respond to God's invitation by becoming ever more like his Son, by loving God and one another, as he loves us.
