The Sunday Word

Are you one of those people who just love weddings?

Well, there's a wedding in this coming Sunday's Gospel  from St. Matthew. And it's an invitation to a lavish feast in the day's first reading, taken from the prophet Isaiah.

Lest you get caught without a wedding garment, you want to check out the Scriptures ahead of time and be prepared!

The first reading this weekend describes a great feast and its menu but the greatest offering here is something much greater than a tasty dish!

The Gospel selection tells the story of a wedding and who's invited, who shows up and who gets bounced. Which category will you and I fall into?

The second reading offers some advice from Saint Paul who claims he can "do all things..." How does he accomplish that? Take a look at the text and find the source of Paul's power.
