Bulletin Shorts for the Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time – 08 November 2020 

Wisdom 6:12-16.  Psalm 63:2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8.  1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.  Matthew 25:1-13.

Being with Jesus – or Not.  The parable today of the ten lamp bearers is about vigilance.  Not an idle standing by merely looking and waiting.  No, a waiting that is prepared (extra oil!) for all that comes, a waiting filled with activity ready to accompany those who journey through doorways to heaven.

  • How can I focus on the bridegroom, on Jesus, and all those he loves?
  • How will I ready myself to do Kingdom of Heaven work this week?
  • What will that work be? For whom will I do it?
