About Today Readings

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Wisdom 6:12-16. My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God – Psalm 62(63):2-8. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. Matthew 25:1-13.

Listen carefully to the voice that guides you

Listen to the wise man. In the reading today the parable at a surface level seems cold and uncaring. The foolish are rejected by the wise and by God. How can this be? The foolish did not listen to the lessons. They were not prepared even though they were taught to be. There are so many things that have been revealed to each of us. We know what is asked of us. We know how we should live and how we should love. There are no surprises with God other than that when we fall or fail he loves us still. God’s mercy is endless but let us not be foolish today. Listen carefully to the voice that guides you.
