32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Reflection by: Fr. Sal Stefula, T.O.R.
My sisters and brothers in Christ,
Whenever we hear about Wisdom in Sacred Scripture, it usually is associated with the Word of God. Jesus preached what God his Father asked Him to preach. Those who possess this Wisdom acquire hope in the Lord which helps them in times of challenge and sorrow. This is the hope that St. Paul speaks about to remind the Thessalonians that because Christ has arisen, so will they. They are God’s chosen and God will not abandon them. We know that God will never abandon us. He does not ask us to be PERFECT but He asks us to be HOLY.
The parable of the 10 Virgins is very familiar to us. It is a message of preparation. We don’t know when the Lord will call any of us so we need to always be prepared and ready. If we are trying to live the way the Lord wants us to live, we should not be afraid. Our “lamps” will always be burning and ready to meet our Lord.
–Are you ready for Christ’s return on the Last Day?
–What is a good preparation to meet Jesus at His second coming?
