My Gospel Reflections for 32nd Sunday in OT, November 6: Matthew 25:1-13


My Reflections:
In the gospel there are two sets of virgins who waited for the bridegroom. The one set belongs to the five who were foolish and the other set belongs to the wise ones. We would always want to be identified with the five wise virgins who brought more than enough oil. The oil that they brought keep their lamps lighted until the arrival of the bridegroom. By doing so they gained entry to the wedding reception which is the kingdom of heaven.

To say that we want to be identified with the wise virgins is easier said than done. Because how can we gain entry if we are not presently living our lives according to what God wants us to live it?

Being prepared and wise requires us to do good always, to always be humble, to always be loving even to those who are not lovable to our sight. Being prepared requires us also not to be judgmental and to always be forgiving.

It’s not easy to always be prepared because this will require us to walk on the less travelled road of righteousness. 

But this is the challenge before us if we really desire entry in the kingdom of heaven. …
