28th Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
Sometime invitations can be annoying. I blame Facebook. Someone creates an event for a movie night or a birthday party and hits a button to invite everyone on their friends list. So I end up inundated with a daily barrage of “invitations” to events that I have no interest in that don’t really effect me. These “invitations” end up filling my inbox like so much spam.
But other invitations are different. Wedding invitations are a good example. You feel honored to receive these. It would be considered crass to be invited to a wedding via Facebook or email. The dignity of the occasion requires something tangible.
