In today's gospel (23rd), who do you interpret the man without a wedding garment as representing?

usccb.org/bible/readings/08231

@Matthew My take: wedding garments were indispensable for attendance at a wedding. Here, the wedding is a metaphor for going before judgment and the garment represents faith and holiness. In other words, a man dying who had not prepared.

There are other interpretations but this one seems best to me.

@George @Matthew that's how I've heard it interpreted as well. I remember being confused when I heard this growing up. It seemed like he was being thrown out because he was poor and couldn't afford fancy clothes, which seemed counter to the other parables I had heard.
