Do you remember being a Foolish Virgin?

There is a frivolity that comes with inexperience that simply isn’t present among others who are well and wise; and today we learn that Christ genuinely resents those who fail to prepare accordingly. So, prepare accordingly. Grab your lamp-oil (well in advance, mind you); sit in the wedding feast with St. Paul’s Church. Don’t be left outside; ye, the unfamiliar supplicants left beyond the gate.
