A while back I had a strange dream. I was driving through the parking lot at Ridge Mall, which was almost totally deserted. I thought I would easily find a good spot to park, but as I drove around, no matter what aisle I tried, there was a blue handicapped symbol painted on every parking space! I don’t remember dreams very often, and I’m certainly no good at interpreting them, but today’s Gospel made me think of that dream. You and I were not the original people invited to the wedding feast. We were not the king’s first choice. We are the ones he found on the highways and byways, the gentiles invited only after the chosen people had rejected their invitations.

St. Barnabas Family Timeline
As a part of our 90th Anniversary celebration, we created a timeline banner
, spanning 1924 to 2014, and invite parishioners to document the year their family joined St. Barnabas Parish. As families mark the year they joined the parish, the banner will grow to show our parish family history. Before or after mass this weekend, please visit the banner at the back of church and add your family name.
