Sep 18, 2023. Gospel: Matt 22:1-14. St Cupertino. Confessor.

And Jesus answering, spoke again in parables to them, saying:
Et respondens Jesus, dixit iterum in parabolis eis, dicens :
⁠ 2 ⁠The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king, who made a marriage for his son.
Simile factum est regnum caelorum homini regi, qui fecit nuptias filio suo.
⁠ 3 ⁠And he sent his servants, to call them that were invited to the marriage; and they would not come.
Et misit servos suos vocare invitatos ad nuptias, et nolebant venire.
⁠ 4 ⁠Again he sent other servants, saying: Tell them that were invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my calves and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come ye to the marriage.
Iterum misit alios servos, dicens : Dicite invitatis : Ecce prandium meum paravi, tauri mei et altilia occisa sunt, et omnia parata : venite ad nuptias.
⁠ 5 ⁠But they neglected, and went their own ways, one to his farm, and another to his merchandise.
Illi autem neglexerunt : et abierunt, alius in villam suam, alius vero ad negotiationem suam :
⁠ 6 ⁠And the rest laid hands on his servants, and having treated them contumeliously, put them to death.
reliqui vero tenuerunt servos ejus, et contumeliis affectos occiderunt.
⁠ 7 ⁠But when the king had heard of it, he was angry, and sending his armies, he destroyed those murderers, and burnt their city.
Rex autem cum audisset, iratus est : et missis exercitibus suis, perdidit homicidas illos, et civitatem illorum succendit.
⁠ 8 ⁠Then he saith to his servants: The marriage indeed is ready; but they that were invited were not worthy.
Tunc ait servis suis : Nuptiae quidem paratae sunt, sed qui invitati erant, non fuerunt digni :
⁠ 9 ⁠Go ye therefore into the highways; and as many as you shall find, call to the marriage.
ite ergo ad exitus viarum, et quoscumque inveneritis, vocate ad nuptias.
⁠ 10 ⁠And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage was filled with guests.
Et egressi servi ejus in vias, congregaverunt omnes quos invenerunt, malos et bonos : et impletae sunt nuptiae discumbentium.
⁠ 11 ⁠And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment.
Intravit autem rex ut viderent discumbentes, et vidit ibi hominem non vestitum veste nuptiali.
⁠ 12 ⁠And he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? But he was silent.
Et ait illi : Amice, quomodo huc intrasti non habens vestem nuptialem? At ille obmutavit.
⁠ 13 ⁠Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Tunc dicit rex ministris : Ligatis manibus et pedibus ejus, mittite eum in tenebras exteriores : ibi erit fletus et stridor dentium.
⁠ 14 ⁠For many are called, but few are chosen.
Multi enim sunt vocati, pauci vero electi.

St Joseph Cupertino, a humble Franciscan Friar of Cupertino Italy, could acquire but little of book knowledge and needed divine help to qualify for priesthood, was favored by his crucified God with a marvelous grace of contemplation, and with the remarkable power of miracles. He died at Orsino A.D. 1663.
