October 15, 2017 • 28th Sunday in Ordinary TimeSunday Readings: Isaiah 25:6–10a; Philippians 4:12–14,19–20; Matthew 22:1–14For Catechists and TeachersScripture BackgroundIn Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells a parable about a king who keeps inviting guests for his son’s wedding feast until he fills the hall. The king wants to share his joy and his table, just as children enjoy biking or skating more when they have others with whom to share their fun.When Luke tells this parable, he does not make it an allegory of the unwillingness of Jesus’ own people to accept him as Matthew does here. Good News follows Luke’s lead and includes only the invitation part of this Gospel. The children explore their experiences of receiving invitations— what they have been invited to, who invited them, why they accepted, what the party was about—and link those experiences to their experience of being part of their church family.Connecting Scripture and DoctrineThe Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation “imparts to the sinner the life of God who reconciles.... He who lives by God’s merciful love is ready to respond to the Lord’s call: ‘Go;  rst be reconciled to your brother’” (CCC, 1442, citing Matthew 5:24).“By his life and by his preaching Jesus attested to the permanent validity of the Decalogue [Ten Commandments]” (CCC, 2076). “The Decalogue contains a privileged expression of the natural law. It is made known to us by divine revelation and by human reason” (CCC, 2080). See also CCC, 561, 2443–2447, 2462–2463.Single-Session Lesson Pacing GuidesNote: These pacing guides are suggestions for how to present the lesson.
