Gospel Reflection

Katarina Goitz ’16, ’18 M.A. 

Whenever I read this passage, I worry and say to myself, “Well, what if that’s me? What if I’m one of the five who fails to bring extra oil for my lamp?” This parable stresses me out, but also makes me reconsider how I am living my life. Am I living in a way that would make me unprepared to meet the Lord? I need to focus on how I’m living today and not wait for a later day to make more time for God. It can’t wait because I will “know neither the day nor the hour” when the bridegroom will come.

Saint of the Day

St. Augustine, you explored the depths of human and divine love--pray for us!
