The Gospels

The Gospels are always outstanding, of course, but we'd like to reflect on the last 2 days' Gospels.

Yesterday (Aug. 20) was about the king that had the big banquet and invited everyone to come. At the end, he found a person without the correct wedding garment on. And then the king said, after throwing the person out, "Many are called, few are chosen."

Could it be that many are called to Religious Life (or another holy vocation), and they do not make themselves available to be chosen?

Today's Gospel was about the 2 Greatest Commandments -- to love the Lord our God with our whole hearts and souls (paraphrasing) and our neighbor as ourselves! This is so awesome! It's the center of everything! It's the guiding star of our every day lives!

God bless you all!
