The Banquet Parable Lk. 14:15-24 by Deacon David Hockwalt. This is the time of year for holiday parties. Decisions need to be made. What will be the best date? Who should we invite? What kind of meal? In Lukes parable of the Banquet the host prepared a delicious meal and invited guests with a social standing who were his relatives, friends, and business associates.

For one reason or another the invited guest declined the invitation. The Master then told his servants to go out into the streets and invite those with no social standing, the lame, the blind, the deaf, and the poor so that his house may be filled. The parable points to another kind of banquet, the banquet of God the Father. The ultimate banquet, ‘the bread of life and cup of salvation’ which is the Mass. At the end of Mass, we are commissioned to ‘go forth’ and extend an invitation to others also to share in the banqueting feast.

DEACON DAVID HOCKWALT was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Diocese of San Bernardino in 2012. He continues in active ministry today and is the spiritual advisor to the vicariate Life in the Spirit team.

We pray that today may be a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this reflection. Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this reflection will help us all better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness. We want to come together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me and holy is His Name!
