Slide 1: Matthew 22:1-14 Slide 2: Have you ever planned a big party and sent out the invitations to your friends, but no one showed up? Slide 3: In Jesus's parable, a king threw a big party for his son's wedding, but none of the people he invited showed up. Slide 4: Of course the king got angry and ordered his servants to go to the main streets to invite everyone to the banquet. Slide 5: The servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the wedding hall was full. Slide 6: In those days, wedding robes are given to guests for free. That explains why the king got angry when he saw a man not wearing a wedding robe. So the king had him thrown out. Slide 7: By refusing to attend the banquet, the invited guests did not only disrespect the king, but also rejected his authority over them. Slide 8: Accepting God’s invitation to be intimate with Him is of supreme importance that it should relativize all our other plans and concerns. Slide 9: God invites us not because we are worthy but because God loves us and wants us to be with Him. Slide 10: Just like the man who did not wear a wedding robe, there are those of us who think that all we have to do is to show up. Slide 11: We need to be “properly dressed”, we need to become like Christ, whose only concern is to do the Father's will. Slide 12: We need to live our lives in accordance with the Father's will: love our neighbors and help those in need. Slide 13: If we do not accept the Father's love and reject his will, we will have no place with him in his heavenly banquet. Slide 14: Made by Fr.
