by Fr. Clement Thibodeau
1. What are the values and the virtues which the Church as a whole, and which your parish in particular, need to acquire before it can be admitted into the presence of the Groom? What is still lacking in the Church community before the Lord can take it to himself finally as his eternal Bride? What have we not done yet that we still need to do? List all the good works that your parish or your prayer group or your small faith-sharing community have yet to accomplish before your task is complete?
2. Are you still actively awaiting the return of the Lord? With fear and trepidation? With joy and eagerness? Do you have an active awareness that the Lord will return to take the Church to himself in consummation as his eternal Bride? Or, is it just like a fairy tale, not quite real? What do you need to do to awaken your awareness to the reality of Christ’s return?
3. What do you think the Lord expects of the Church in order to be more prepared for his coming? What would you do differently if you knew for sure that Christ will come five years from now, or will not come?

Scripture Study Questions
by Vince Contreras
2. In the 2nd reading, St. Paul refers to the Second Coming of Jesus at the end of time when all who are in Christ (beginning with those Christians who have left this life before us) will be caught up to be with him in heaven forever. Why should these words bring us comfort?
3. How does the parable in the Gospel relate to Matthew 24? To the coming Advent season?
4. In what way were the ten girls alike? How were they different? What unexpected event takes place (verses 5-6)? With what embarrassing consequence (verse 8)?
5. Why is vigilance and personal readiness so important to Jesus’ listeners? In regard to the end of each of our lives? To the Second Coming?
6. Who are you most like in this story? Why?
7. What is the “oil” that keeps your “lamp” lit? How can you keep it replenished?
8. At the final wedding banquet (Revelation 19:6-9; 21:2-4), which side of the door will you be standing? Why?
