Gospel: Luke 14:15–24
"Come, for everything is ready now" (cf. Luke 14:17)
In today's Gospel, Jesus was referring to the many individuals who refused to listen to His invitation to come and dine with Him. What are our reasons or excuses for not having time to pray or to hear mass? Is it time limit, traffic, tiredness, busy schedule?
“Come”, all is prepared for you, all is ready now. Today, Jesus is inviting us to His house wanting to eat with us, to talk with us and to make us feel loved.
How would you respond to Jesus’ invitation? Will you also make excuses or will you joyfully accept His invitation and enjoy a moment with Him? A wonderful gift and opportunity are given to us today. Don’t miss out this special invitation!
