19th Sunday After Pentecost 2021
Today is also the feast of the “greatest saint of modern times”, St. Therese. The Gospel for this Mass demonstrates the mercy and justice of God in the parable of the wedding feast. Those were punished for mistreating the messengers thus fulfilling God’s justice. God’s mercy was shown to those who were invited afterwards. The mercy and justice of God are understood as attributes of God which can only be spoken of in that way by analogy.
