The Wedding Garment

first_img Share Share Share Sharing is caring! Tweetcenter_img Image via: gbcdecatur.orgWhen I was a young fellow, there was a priest in Port of Spain who achieved a certain notoriety because of what he used to do at weddings. If a bride came to church with her shoulders and upper torso practically exposed, he would go to the sacristy, get an old jacket and throw it over her shoulders, before he proceeded with the ceremony. Before long, brides at that Church came completely covered from head to toe.It was a case of one exaggeration being met with another, but the practice of that priest often comes to mind whenever I read today’s Gospel. The poor man who came not badly but inappropriately dressed got summarily kicked out of the wedding. He was wearing the wrong clothes. I say “wrong clothes,” not to suggest casual wear when formal was required. In the days of the gospel, quests were provided with a wedding garment, much as we robe infants at baptism today with a symbolic garment to signify their new status. In a similar way, guests had to put on the wedding garment provided by the host over whatever clothes they arrived with. One result of that was that weddings could not become fashion shows. Everybody wore the same thing.Jesus, of course, is not really talking of befitting wear for weddings. In the traditional Israelite understanding, which he shared, the wedding feast was a symbol of the joyful union with God in at the end of time. The garment here is not the level of finery you could afford but what qualities you should come clothed in, if you wished to share in the feast and be part of the Lord’s company.The Bible does not focus specifically on moral requirements for enjoying the feast. The New Testament sets out in a variety of different ways different habits and values of Christian living. Every letter of St. Paul, for instance, has a section devoted to this purpose. One value that gets special mention is perseverance. Jesus devoted two parables to the idea: a man getting ready for bed, disturbed by a friend pounding at his door, looking for a few loaves to host an untimely visitor; and the woman who pesters the unjust judge to give her justice and doesn’t cease petering until she gets it.In a famous section of his letter, the author of Hebrews counselled his hearers who were growing tired and were tempted to give up: “What a cloud of innumerable witnesses surround us! So let us be rid of every encumbrance… Lift up your drooping hands and strengthen your trembling knees” and keep running the race till the end (12: 1, 12). Faith was a marathon not a sprint. It was a metaphor New Testament writers particularly liked.St. Matthew is the evangelist who gives the most deliberate attention to being accepted or rejected at the end, in his scene of the Last Judgement in chapter 25. The principal feature of this scene is the element of surprise. Both groups, the just and the unjust, hear something completely unexpected. The just are told first that when they fed the hungry, gave drink to the thirsty, welcomed the stranger, clothed the naked, and visited the sick and imprisoned, they were in fact encountering and serving the Lord. This is a surprise, because all they saw when they were so engaged were people who were hungry, thirty, sick, naked, and imprisoned. They are told that all the while the one in need they were helping was the Lord incognito.The unjust get a surprise in the other direction. When they are told who they were neglecting in the different persons in need they bypassed, we can imagine what their reaction must have been Lord, had we known that people like that were actually you, how could we possibly have passed you by?But they did. And we do it still, because the faces of human need remain all too human. There’s nothing divine about any of them. We tend therefore to see only what our eyes disclose. And all the while the Lord is there waiting to be met.By: Father Henry Charles, Ph.d 35 Views   no discussions FaithLifestyleLocalNews The Wedding Garment by: – October 8, 2011last_img read more

Slaven Bilic wants to put West Ham’s start in perspective

first_imgSlaven Bilic has moved to quell the rising expectation levels at West Ham following a string of impressive results. They travel to Upton Park having drawn at Liverpool on Sunday and Bilic is expecting a tough test against the newly-promoted Canaries. “Norwich are a really good team,” he added. “We know it will be a difficult game, they have started very well. We have watched a few games, they are full of confidence. They defend as a unit and are very solid. “They are not a spectacular team but they have everything – pace, ability, size. Their last game at Anfield maybe Liverpool had just one or two chances. You can’t beat them by being predictable. “It gives us an advantage as Norwich had one day less playing Sunday, Wednesday (against West Brom in the Capital One Cup) as opposed to Saturday, Tuesday. It should give us a small advantage.” The Hammers became just the fourth team in Premier League history to win away at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City in the same season after a hard-fought 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium last Saturday. Those three results are more significant as they came in Bilic’s first three away league games as boss at Upton Park – with West Ham sitting third in the league, just three points adrift of City. They welcome Norwich to east London on Saturday and, with such momentous results already sealed, Bilic is keen to keep a lid on any heightened expectations after a similar start last season under previous boss Sam Allardyce petered out. “It’s too early to talk about the start,” he said. “At the end they lost a bit of motivation last season, it happened in February. But I’m not thinking about that period, all I’m thinking about now is the Norwich game. We are trying to mix the team. “I’m just thinking about Norwich and Sunderland then we have the international break. It will be nice to win all games in the Premier League, that’s our aim of course. That is important for every team we play.” West Ham lost in extra-time to Leicester in the Capital One Cup third round on Tuesday night, with Andy Carroll playing over an hour in his first start since January and Bilic has been impressed wit the England striker’s application to overcome another serious injury. “Andy couldn’t do more in training,” he said of West Ham’s record signing. “After seven months out, these things take time. We have to be patient and we don’t want to rush him. Having said that, he can only regain that edge by playing games, so we have to find the right balance.” Like West Ham, Norwich have a strong away record and have lost just once on the road in the league since Alex Neil’s appointment at the turn of the year.
