SPEAKER:  Fr. Foeckler, Miles Jesu                TOPIC:     Parable of Wedding Banquet



Matthew 22New International Version (NIV)

The Parable of the Wedding Banquet

22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared 

a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell

them to come, but they refused to come.

“Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared 

my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the 

wedding banquet.’

“But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to his business. The rest seized his 

servants, mistreated them and killed them. The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed

those murderers and burned their city.

“Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to 

come. So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ 10 So the servants went 

out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the 

wedding hall was filled with guests.

11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding

clothes. 12 He asked, ‘How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ The man was speechless.

13 “Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, 

where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

14 “For many are invited, but few are chosen.”


Fr. Foeckler read the Parable (story with important message) of the Wedding Banquet in the book of Mark, where the King prepares the wedding banquet for his son. Jesus is actually telling the story of Israel in 

one simple story using this parable. Jesus is talking about the past and now telling us about the future.


"Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding banquet of the Lamb"

We hear this phrase during our mass spoken by the priest.

In the wedding, there is Bride and Groom.

The Wedding represents the Wedding Supper of the Lamb/Son.

The Bride represents Us, the Church and the Groom is Jesus.

This IS the Mystical Marriage which is Virginal and Pure.


In Revelation 19,  Jesus standing at the door and knock. Whoever hears His voice opens the door, 

will eat and drink with Him. "I will eat with him and he will eat with Me".

The word EAT refers to the Lord's Supper as in Mass and Eucharist.

This is also symbolized during wedding, when the bride and groom feeds the cake to each other.


Just as Jesus standing at the door and knocks and INVITES  EACH ONE  of our hearts to His Banquet, 

let us not get busy with our daily businesses of everyday life but rather open our hearts and prepare 

our wedding garments.  Our Wedding Garments are OUR SOUL.
