18th Sun [A] 2014

We just heard: Thus says the LORD: All you who are thirsty come to the water! You who have no money, come, receive grain and eat; come, without paying and without cost, drink wine and milk!

What we are hearing is God’s divine invitation to us. The question is: Do we recognize that? Does it mean anything to us, or are we just not interested?
