WK 28A

The parable that Matthew added to the main parable about the wedding feast (the man without the proper wedding garment) may seem confusing. Why did he add this? Probably because he wanted to make the point that there are requirements for the Kingdom of Heaven: the willingness to embrace and live according to the gospel message. His presence in the gospel challenges us to recognize God’s call to us. Do you remember a white garment that was given to you at baptism? Do you know where that garment is? We were told to keep it white (sinless). It was a call to live each day as Jesus tells us and shows us how to live. We need to “see Jesus more clearly; love Him more dearly; follow Him more nearly, day by day.”
