Have you ever arrived late to mass, maybe during the homily and thought, "better late than never"? Listen to this week's Sunday podcast about READINESS:
- "Better late than never" might pass in a lot of different things in life, but when it comes to our readiness for Christ to come again, when it comes to our salvation, better late than never is a pretty dangerous proposition.
- Now that we're in November, we're going to hear about the last things: about death and judgment, heaven, hell and purgatory... You're going to have a series of Gospels all leading up to Advent with a similar theme of "be prepared, stay awake, be watchful"
- This seems kind of uncharitable... shouldn't the people that have the oil share some? Isn't that what Jesus would have said: share some of the oil with the people that don't, so that your lantern is lit? The answer would be no.
