My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God

 When I went to the reading for this Sunday's Liturgy, I was struck by the Responsorial Psalm: " My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God." 

The verses are taken from Psalm 63:

"O God, you are my God whom I seek;

for you my flesh pines and my soul thirsts

like the earth, parched, lifeless, and without water."

I will just give the above which is only the first stanza, but it made me think. My soul is thirsting for the Lord, my God. It is God whom I seek....

The Gospel is Matthew 25: 1-13 where Jesus tells the parable of the ten virgins who went out to meet the bridegroom. Five were foolish and five wise. Am I one of the foolish or one of the wise?
