32nd Sunday - A (November 12, 2017)
Five Are Foolish, Five Are Wise
A few weeks ago, we listened to another wedding parable, with a king inviting guests to his son’s wedding (Matthew 22: 1-10). In that parable, the invited guests refused to come. The king then sent his servants out to “invite to the feast whomever [they] find. The servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found, bad and good alike.”
In today’s parable, both the wise and the foolish virgins are included in the wedding.
God does not discriminate in his invitation.
It is up to us to respond.
