We see Jesus talking to the chief priests and elders of the people again, though the message is for us to hear as well. This is the great wedding banquet that we know to be the heavenly banquet, the biggest party we could ever imagine! But what happens when we talk to some people about Heaven? Some might roll their eyes, still others; (even some who are fairly faithful) might say “I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it”.
Ask the same folks about the party coming up this weekend with their friends, or the concert they are going to and they may be able to tell you all about it, who’s coming, the fun they plan on having and more.
Instead, let’s visualize the ultimate party this weekend; not a kegger, but Heaven, celebrating eternity with the ones you love. If we stop and contemplate Heaven as the ultimate party, how can it NOT put us in a “partying” mood to come to Mass and receive just a small taste of the greatest party of all time! Deacon Tom
