Thought for the day: In the parables of Jesus, wedding feasts are mentioned from time to time. The original parable may have ended with the words “invite everyone you can find to the wedding.” The detail of the troops, highly unlikely as an actual part of a wedding invitation, realistically portrays the later destruction of Jerusalem, which Christians did indeed look back upon as punishment precisely for that rejection. The final verse is difficult for us today on a spiritual level. However, it is meant to provoke (re)conversion in a possibly complacent church. Prayer: Lord, we know that you love us and invite us to the wedding feast of the Lamb. Help us to respond to your love that we may be followers of your Son not only in name but also in fact.

Pope Francis on X: One of the tasks of the Synod is to journey together and to listen to one another, so that the Spirit can suggest to us new ways and paths to bring the Gospel to the hearts of those who are distant, indifferent or without hope, yet continue to seek “a great joy” (Mt 2:10).

A Prayer for the Synod in Rome
Holy Spirit, breath of Pentecost, you send us to proclaim Christ and to welcome into our communities those who do not yet know him. Come down, we pray, upon the participants of the Synod and upon all who are present in this church, filling them with your wisdom and courage in order to be servants of communion and bold witnesses of your forgiveness in today’s world! We make this prayer through Christ our Lord, Amen.
