Dear Prayer Partners,

Sunday’s gospel (28th Sunday) brings to mind how special we are having been invited by God to his Son’s marriage feast. Politeness calls us to let our potential host know whether we can come or not. It would be improper to simply ignore the invitation. Ultimately, God’s invitation is for eternal life and nothing on earth compares to that gift. With God’s grace, we will be able to discern what we are to choose and how we are to live as those invited to that special banquet!
