Parable of the Ten Virgins g

On Holy Tuesday Presanctified, we read the Parable of the ten virgins. This parable is one of the most important in all of Scripture, and a proper understanding of it is crucial. The interpreter par-excellence of this Gospel is my Patron, St Seraphim of Sarov. His "Conversation with Motovilov" (also here) contains pearls regarding this parable.
