Homily: 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Sunday’s Gospel ends on a wrenching note. “Many are invited, but few are chosen” That doesn’t sound too Christ-like to me.  And unfortunately it is one of those lines in the Bible that is often misread, misunderstood and misused. 

So how is this Good News? 

Is it true that only a few are “chosen?”

And what is deeper meaning of this parable that calls you and I to make a choice in our daily lives?
