Be Fit to Receive the Lord

        To me this morning's Gospel reading from Luke 5 was all about "fitting."  When Jesus (the bridegroom) was still with his disciples, it's fitting for them to eat and drink.  New wine must be poured into fresh wineskins, not old ones.  Likewise, to receive the Lord in the Holy Eucharist, we must be sufficiently clean and pure on the inside.
