Gospel of today   21/08/2019

Jesus again in reply spoke to the chief priests and the elders of the people in parables saying, "The Kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. He dispatched his servants to summon the invited guests to the feast, but they refused to come. A second time he sent other servants, saying, 'Tell those invited: "Behold, I have prepared my banquet, my calves and fattened cattle are killed, and everything is ready; come to the feast."' Some ignored the invitation and went away, one to his farm, another to his business. The rest laid hold of his servants, mistreated them, and killed them. The king was enraged and sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. Then the king said to his servants, 'The feast is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy to come. Go out, therefore, into the main roads and invite to the feast whomever you find.' The servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found, bad and good alike, and the hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to meet the guests he saw a man there not dressed in a wedding garment. He said to him, 'My friend, how is it that you came in here without a wedding garment?' But he was reduced to silence. Then the king said to his attendants, 'Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.' Many are invited, but few are chosen."

Mt 20, 1-16a

“No matter what storm you face, you need to know that God loves you.
He has not abandoned you”

Putting prayer into action


The outpouring of the Spirit is not an event in the past that is over and done with: Pentecost, as a transformative experience brought about by the Holy Spirit, is still going on in the Church.

United with Mary


During an interview, Pope Francis speaks of the missionary Church and said: "Instead of being just a church that welcomes and receives ... let us strive to be a church that finds new roads, which is able to go out of herself and go to those who do not attend, who are gone or indifferent...

    “We discovered the FIAT-Rosary not long after the foundation of our Community – dedicated to Our Lady of Walsingham. It spoke deeply to us because our charism is rooted in the ‘Fiat’ of Mary at the Annunciation. We say the FIAT-Rosary daily together as a community and hope to spread this devotion throughout England.”
