The Wise Virgins
Today's Gospel tells us that the five wise virgins had a good supply of oil for their lamps; the foolish ones did not and wanted to borrow oil from the wise but were told to go buy for themselves as there might not be enough for any of the lamps if they shared. I think the Gospel is mostly about the fact that one must be prepared. I find Sunday's Gospel on the wedding feast a good lesson for all of us to be humble and seek the last place. Also, it is interesting that we are to go invite those who no one else invites: the sick, the lame, the blind, etc. - I think it is what the Holy Father has been saying about going out to look for others.
