Fr. Foeckler begins with reading the Parable of ten virgins (Matt 25:1-13)

Once again he reminds us that the Bride is referred to Us and the Groom is referred to Jesus.


There were ten Virgins (five wise and five foolish) who had lamps. 

However only five wise virgins were prepared and refilled their lamps.   

While five foolish virgins went to buy oil, the Bridegroom came home. 

The parable is clear about being ready for the returning of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. 


'Lamp'  or ' light'  is also mentioned in other stories in the bible. 


"Let your lamp shine before men so that they may see your goodworks and give glory to God"                                                                                                                                                  (Matt 5:16) 

"No one after lighting a lamp puts in under the cellar or basket but on a stand"                                                                                                                                                  (Luke 11:33)


The lamp represents Life. The oil represents Good works. The thing that makes the lamp glow is oil. 

Therefore the Good works makes our Life shine. God wants us to be doing good works in our life. 

Just as you see the 'ring or halo' on top of a saint, it represent the glow from the lamp within his soul. 

The purpose of life is to do ALL GOOD we can do in the time we have. 

For example; go to mass, confession, pray   

                    love God the Father in heaven             

                    obey parents         

                    be a good student and do your best


This way we are given 'merit' according to our good works from God who gives us through His grace.
