Gospel Reading: Matthew 22:1-14

“Many are invited, but few are chosen.”

Although there is the possibility to look at this passage with worry and speculation, it is important to view it as an opportunity to live the fullness of the Gospel when it comes to embracing a life of charity and discipleship. We are all called to accept the Lord’s invitation to follow him, and we must infuse this reality into our lessons. This is for the ultimate benefit of our students and of our broader Catholic educational community.

What opportunities have you taken to encourage students to accept Christ’s invitation to be his disciple?
