 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"Do not risk being shut out!

What does the image of a door say to us about the kingdom of God? Jesus' story about the door being shut to those who come too late suggests they had offended their host and deserved to be excluded. It was customary for teachers in Jesus' time to close the door on tardy students and not allow them back for a whole week in order to teach them a lesson in discipline and faithfulness.                       

Have a few minutes to spend with The Good Shepherd?  Come to St. Joseph's Church on Thursday's for Holy Hour at 5 p.m.  On Friday's come & join us to pray the Divine Mercy with Fr. Jaime at 3 p.m.  Holy Rosary will be held Monday--Friday's after the daily mass.
