32nd Sunday Ordinary Time, Cycle A

Good News Inspiration for Daily Life

32nd Sunday Bulletin Insert for November 8, 2020.

Description: In Matthew 25:1-13, the Gospel reading for the 32nd Sunday Ordinary Time, we learn what it means to be truly foolish. We believe in Christ – good! We pray – good! We put time into our faith growth and we value opportunities for more faith formation – very wise! And we say that we trust God – wonderful! But what happens when God doesn’t answer our prayers fast enough? What if we need Christ’s loving embrace or his protection from evil and yet we’re suffering with no end in sight? Where is Jesus then?

Usually, God’s timing is not ours. We think we have the right idea about how soon God should intervene when we ask for his help. Right now is a good time for it, right? Of course! But perhaps not from God’s perspective. (Why do we want to leave God in charge anyway, if he doesn’t see things our way, huh?)
