SUNDAY’S GOSPEL – November 12, 2017

Author: David Dziena ~ November 1, 2017


Matthew 25:1–13

In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus uses the parable of the bridegroom and 10 girls to tell his disciples to remain vigilant. The parable describes some of the girls as foolish and some as wise. Those who were ready for the bridegroom went into the wedding feast. The bridegroom, however, didn’t even acknowledge those who didn’t prepare. Jesus teaches us to always be prepared and do good things. We never know when he will return. This is an opportune time to recognize that when we make good choices, we are preparing for Jesus’ coming.
