Tuesday of the 31 week in ordinary time
Come to eat, everything is ready!
- in just a minute,
- let me finish my phone call conversation,
- I am not hungry,
Sounds familiar? You put in so much work to prepare a nice family dinner, but nobody seems to respect that. God prepared a dinner for us, and it is ready now. Not tomorrow, not next week, or in another year- it is ready right now. “But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves.” We can’t make any excuses; we have to respond right away. Otherwise someone else will take our place at God’s table. No, we don’t want that to happen, and so we can’t miss it! Come, everyone; just come.
