Queenship of The Blessed Virgin Mary
Judges 11:29-39. Psalm 39(40):5, 7-10. Matthew 22:1-14.
Here am I. Lord; I come to do your will – Psalm 39(40):5, 7-10.
‘Many are called, but few are chosen.’
We live in a world where we have many choices. Sometimes this makes coming to decisions difficult. Many struggle to decide whether to be for God. In today’s parable, Jesus makes clear that every time we make a decision we either choose for or against God. We are accountable for the decisions we make, for the way we live our lives, for the relationships we have, the way we spend our time and our resources.
Those who make themselves available to God share in the joy of the kingdom. The Good News of Jesus is a story of grace, of love, of wonder, and each of us is called through our baptism to live for it and to share it.
How will I do this today? I might start by attending to God’s presence, before noticing the movements within me as I recall the events of my day.
