The Parable of the Wedding Banquet

22 And again Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying, 2 “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a marriage feast for his son, 3 and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast; but they would not come. 4 Again he sent other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, Behold, I have made ready my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves are killed, and everything is ready; come to the marriage feast.’

Mary, Mother of the Church

Our Lady’s title Mother of the Church was first used by Saint Ambrose in the fourth century, by Popes Benedict XIV and Leo XIII and was formally conferred at Vatican II by Paul VI’s declaration “Mary Most Holy Mother of the Church, that is, of all the Christian people”.
