Thirty Second Sunday in Ordinary TimeMatthew 25:1-13
Today the gospel is The Parable of the Ten Bridesmaids. Five were wise, five, foolish. As we recall the story of how five entered the banquet while the others were sent on their way to find oil for thier lamps, we remember the final words of the gospel: “Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”
This is a stark reminder to us that none of us know when the Lord will call us home to Him. And we want to be prepared. We desire to have something that proves our love for Him and our desire to be with Him for eternity. So be wise. Be prepared. Wait with eager expectation and have oil in your lamp.
