Twenty-Eight Sunday in Ordinary Time

Scripture Reading: Matthew 22:1-14

Let us begin today’s Sunday reflection with a song written by an American Medical Mission Sister Miriam Therese Winter in 1966. The fourth standard of the hymn goes thus: “Now God has written a lesson for the rest of the mankind; If we’re slow at responding, he may leave us behind. He’s preparing a banquet for that great and glorious day when the Lord and Master calls us, be certain not to say”. Chorus: “I cannot come to the banquet, I cannot come to the banquet, don’t trouble me now. I have married a wife; I have bought me a cow. I have fields and commitments that cost a pretty sum. Pray, hold me excused, I cannot come.”
