The wise and foolish virgins [Sunday Homily, November 12, 2017]

Added 10 November 2017 by Bishop Robert Barron

How do we wait? That is the question addressed by Jesus' parable for today. While we wait for the second coming of the Lord, we should keep our lamps stocked with oil, that is to say, we should pray, study, love, do the works of mercy, and keep vigil. In so doing, we are ready for the arrival of the Bridegroom.
